Empiricism

Haven’t been able to blog for a while – too much going on. To list but a few things:

– a proposal for a new work for the Atrium in the Hague, a co-production with PLAY+ART
– a proposal for Voordekunst (crowdfunding) to get our Athens exhibition to the Netherlands
– photo sessions for the Bommelerwaard Religions project
– a trip to Norway to study Nordic art
– a trip to the UK to study the art of gardening
– a couple of project management courses
– a trainers assessment (I passed)
And so on, and so on.

I’ve come to the conclusion that the thing that I crave – one week completely to myself in which to work in my studio – is not going to happen any time soon. I will have to make do with patchworking my attention – something I have become good at but resent a little, too. Did famous thinkers like Francis Bacon (above) time-share their minds? We met him at a famous college at Cambridge (I believe it was Kings College) and he was soooo at ease. Am intending to find a good biography of mr. Bacon – he started empiricism, after all.  Which is something I owe a great deal to.

Later:  he must have time-shared, too: philosopher, statesman, scientist, jurist, orator and author.  What am I complaining of? Ordered The Man Who Saw Through Time by Loren Eiseley.
