I invite you to join me on a journey to explore memories of the future.
a blog by john-michael korpal
The Chicago art scene is open to the possibility of exploring new ideas and innovative concepts surrounding what art can look like and different ways that it can be expressed.
Exploring different ideas as a community, experimenting with work that challenges and redefines the current understanding while holding space for new works to be created and providing fodder for future works.
Chicago is filled with incubator spaces that encourage the artist to explore and create, developing new works that question and challenge how people perceive and relate to the world around them.
Chicago has many artist communities that support and nurture its artist’s creative process as they explore the subtle nuances as they strive to deepen the scope of their work.
For me this is a very beneficial as it allows me the ability to be an active part of a community that supports my continual pushing of my boundaries surrounding my work and empowers and support Flying Dolphin Studio as a creative space that is open and receptive to broader scope of experiences for individuals with diverse interests and backgrounds generating the space for a larger dialog to be created and explored.
I am so excited to be participating in the “There’s A Crack In Everything…” exhibit at Perkolator!!!
I am also teaching two Calligraphy classes at the studio that day…and have not figured out how to be at two places at once.
Please if you get a chance stop by and check out the show the art will be up till July 16.
flat edges first
placing others within later
each fit only one place
working –agreeing- fitting in with it’s surrounding neighbors
rounded edge fitting into its opposite equal
colors connect- create
becoming the whole
something that was not there
is now for all to see
