Invest in yourself

Artful Contemplation is about giving ourselves permission to peer into the great beyond with a sense of adventure and possibility. And where the impulse is felt strongest, to actually transgress the boundary and enter into the unknown. It is at this edge that we feel most alive. It is at this edge where we sense there is more to us than meets the eye.

“…artworks open up a field of pure possibilities for us as viewers, a ‘potential’ space that invites our co-creativity: ‘the ‘space’ of the painting and the ‘space of the viewer are to blend into a common space, and it is in and out of this common space that the work of creation is to occur.”(George Pattison)

It is when you “encounter the work…appropriate a personal meaning…and re-imagine it”, that you honor the artist and complete the gesture that they began through the artwork.
