Some classic advice from Maggi Hambling

“You know the thing Brancusi said…it isn’t difficult to make a piece of art, the difficulty lies in being in the right state to do it…. a sort of emptying myself of all my baggage so that the subject, whether it’s a person or a wave, or whatever it is, can come through me on to the canvas or into the sculpture”

It is for this very reason, finding the physical and emotional space to discover and develop creative flow, that we have developed a Residency program in the Drawing Room at The PaintBox in association with the international body ResArtis. Check it out here.

It is for this reason that we have offered a residency as The People’s Choice Prize for this year’s Adelaide Hills Landscape Art Prize. Entries close Friday, September 13th.

In the meantime we hope you enjoy this film by Tate Modern, it’s highly recommended.
