The Third Choice in Art…Guest Blogger: Moira Kloster

January 7, 2018

Level 4 Experimental Research for Art and Advanced Design – Diploma    Class Name: Coral Open House / Exhibition Nov.18, 2017

   I have never liked boundaries or limits. I’m always looking for a third choice instead of “either/or”. Yet until recently, as an artist I limited myself to the real, the literal, and the conventional. Gail’s courses have given me the third choice. In Level 1 I took my first small steps away from copying reality. That was a challenge, but I found I welcomed it. In Level 2 and 3 I began to stretch beyond literal and conventional pictures. And now in Level 4, I have learned to explore an idea without trying to squash it into a particular shape from the start. I have learned to develop a theme without settling for the first few ideas that come to me. I have learned to let a theme take me on its own path instead of me pushing it my way. I have grown beyond measure. Moira Kloster

Moira’s theme has generally focused on those things that may seem out of place in their environment at first glance but because of their unique contrasts, can bring interest to a design. Gail Harker
