Twice a week I look forward to the arrival of Robert Genn’s letters to artists in my inbox. Today the subject was the first thing that grabbed my attention – “What is art?”, one of those questions to which there seem to be as many different answers as there are people answering. After enjoying reading I came to what is, for me, the nub of the letter – the video of Bob Gregson’s work. Art to make you think, and art to make you smile; above all, art that invites you in to share and enjoy the experience – literally.
I’d suggest you read the letter, and watch the video in that context. If you have time, wander around Robert Genn’s website and enjoy some of the many features he has there.
If the video is all you have time for, then you’ll find it’s ten minutes well spent.
Thank you, again, Robert Genn, for an introduction to something interesting, creative and inspiring.
