47 Little Clay Tiles

I'm off to Vietnam for 2 weeks. It started out how I was thinking how to get my Art into a country across the world but the more I've thought about it the more beautiful I think it is, and the harder I've worked on it. I do think Art is one of the most beautiful gift I can give as an artist. I appreciate that the people are poor, why should Art only be enjoyed by people who aren't poor? I want to give them a possession that they can keep, everyone deserves possessions, they re quite lovely little objects with beautiful words on them. Ok there is a picture of my ugly mug on it, but it's a happy little face. I want to give them a little hope. All art is pretentious and self righteous because you have to be to believe you have something important to say. And I believe Love, friendship, comedy and happiness are the most important things in the world, and so many people forget that. I hope you can understand, it's really not all about making myself feel good about myself it's about sharing something universally beautiful. Please comment I would really appreciate som feedback as I have had quite a few mixed responses to the project. Thanks x
