Photoshop related Nightmares
by Katie Anderson
Whilst the rest of the world is outside absorbing sunshine and vitamin D furiously before said sun vanishes into the myths of time for another six months or so… I have been forming a love-hate (but largely hate) relationship with adobe photoshop.
When a great idea to get young people thinking and making through collage turned into an even cooler idea to get all sorts of people into street art really took off, I naively went with the assumption that the computer would fix it.
I hate computers.
I’m not really a computer person. I am for the real, the tangible, the physical. I look for the tactile quality of things and build a conversation around the physicality of objects. This process has somehow lost all of the above for me, although hopefully with the end result that plenty of others can get appreciate the quick, easy availability with which they can make their very own bit of art. (The quick and easy turning into some kind of sadistic joke in my mind.)
The more the weather is beautiful, the more I dread when it breaks and what will happen next weekend. I could beg for dry weather.
I am also gagging for some time off, however straight after Guid Nychburris day, preperations really come to a head for the WASPS Summer Show. It runs for six weeks from the end of June, in the lesser town hall. Onwards and Upwards!!
