I have thought long and hard about it, but I think I need a holiday. This will be the last post for a little while, while I go out for big walks, swim in the lake, renovate our kitchen, drink g&t’s in the sun and generally try not to sit at the computer and think about other artists projects. I need to dedicate some time to my own work again, without distractions and test out a couple of ideas which have been swirling in my head, but never made it to film. Who knows, I might even get inspired to repair all the broken links on this blog, so that our archive will showcase a whopping 400 posts. In the meantime I wish you all a happy festive season, stay happy and enjoy your break.
But before I go I would like to share the work of Callum Ross, an Australian artist. With “Mountain” he takes us to places with sincere connections, making the small moments we all experience visible. While we are exploring the calm landscapes, a quiet tension is gathering in the background, opening up questions of where to next and what will we find there.
19 issues, 24 months, 130 artists presented in UYW. Another 398 artists on the blog and numerous more through twitter and facebook. I know these are not big number, but I am very excited to have made it this far. I still have big dreams of where I would like to take UYW. Next year I would like to implement a few new ideas and hope to push those ventures we started this year a step closer to the exhibition line. Thank you very much for being part of our small family and a big hug to everyone. Without you, you and you, your niece, your brother, neighbor – the artists & the reader, UYW would not be possible.
I am very excited to be sharing this issue with Fabio Severo all the way from Rome. In June we decided to share the work of artists working with alternative methods in photography, so may I present:
You can find the new issue here.
