Art And Craft
Bathurst, New South Wales
When ones muse is moved to speak and resonance occurs
the work ensuing be it line on canvas,
or line of words or notes
may incarnate by one of disparate process.
Process ‘A’, the path of safety,
wherein the work is moulded ,coaxed and bobbed to be an ornament,
to not offend, and stretch not mind or heart,
this we know as craft.
But process ‘B’, the path of danger is another story,
here the musee follows without question where the heart doth go,
and stumbles , falls and suffers injury , yet carries on regardless.
The work produced heeds not the flavour of the month or social norms
nor fears the power it may mediate ,
this we know as art.
