    Are you Tired of Social Media? [176]

    Are you Tired of Social Media? [176]

    Recently we've noticed a trend among the artists we know online; there seem to be more and more complaints about social media. Some artists have left Facebook on principle, many are disillusioned with Instagram's shift to bite-sized video content, and most of us haven't even tried Tik Tok. The dissatisfaction runs the gamut - if you have used social media for years, you might be finding it less effective than before. And if you are only just starting online, you might be struggling against the algorithm, and wondering how anyone ever built up a sizeable following. But have we lost our perspective? Social media platforms still allow us to share our art with the world, completely free of charge and surely that has greatly levelled the playing field for contemporary artists? As you may be able to tell, we have more questions than answers, -and we may have done a bit more moaning than usual - but we hope our discussion offers food for thought in an ever-changing world.

    This is our last episode for a month, as we'll be taking a short break. Do make sure you are subscribed so you don't miss us when we return.

    Creative Exploration with Jane Davies [175]

    Creative Exploration with Jane Davies [175]

    This week Louise is joined by American artist Jane Davies for a wide-ranging conversation around the topic of exploration. Jane is a true explorer, always experimenting and seeking new ways to access her creative instincts, resulting in fresh and exciting work that never stands still.  In this candid conversation, we discuss the role of intuition and the value of constant experimentation but we also admit to going off track sometimes and getting stuck in conventional ways of thinking or working. This isn't just a philosophical conversation - we also share some of our own ways of getting unstuck, including two different very practical collage exercises. If you are feeling stuck or bored, we hope this lively conversation helps you to shake things up again - after all, what's the worst that could happen!?

    Body Based guidance with Tamsin Crimmens [174]

    Body Based guidance with Tamsin Crimmens [174]

    Making art is demanding. It's a creative and personal challenge and ultimately deeply personal. Today Alice talks to somatic coach Tamsin Crimmens about recognising ways our bodies show us things may not always be right... anxiety, frustration, procrastinating - all can be signs to listen...

    When we're not trying to escape the moment, but BE with it, this is where we build our capacity.

    In this episode we talk about how to be more present so that instead of bouncing between different states of stress we can turn towards ourselves more deeply ... that can only be good for any artist!

    When Real Life Interrupts [173]

    When Real Life Interrupts [173]

    Does making your own art sometimes feel insignificant in the face of world circumstances? If so, you are not alone. But it's not only the BIG things which can get in the way; what about when "just life" keeps you away? 

    In this episode we talk about:
    • how art can be a beneficial and restorative practice
    • recognising your own capacity and making allowances for other life events
    • the relationship of our own emotional state and how this relates to the art we make
    • and when you run out of steam, what is it that ultimately keeps pulling you back?

    What Makes a Good Drawing? [172]

    What Makes a Good Drawing? [172]

    This week, we turn our attention to the ancient art of drawing and in particular to the question of what makes a good drawing. We both often incorporate drawn marks into our abstract work, but what about drawing as an art form in itself, or as a preparation for paintings, or even as a meditative process designed to enrich our lives? In this wide-ranging conversation, we discuss what is meant by the word ‘drawing;’ debate the value of blind or instinctual drawing; and share our own approach to the balance between accuracy and personality. We also consider whether drawing matters at all - is it relevant if you only want to paint abstractly? As usual, we come at this from different perspectives and we hope our discussion sparks some thoughts about what you look for, or want to achieve, from drawing. Maybe it will even inspire you to give it a go!

    Mid-Year Reflections [171]

    Mid-Year Reflections [171]

    As we hit the summer solstice, we take a pause to look back on the first half of the year, and ask what we might want for the next six months. This is exactly what summer solstice has always been on our half of the world - a time to slow down and enjoy the sun and just take some time to think about our next evolution. As we discuss this, we consider the realities of personal growth, the inevitability of getting things wrong before we get them right, and the importance of putting ourselves first (something that is particularly hard for many women). This kind of pause is a fabulous way to break routine and challenge our habits. We hope this episode inspires you to spend a day or two simply reflecting on where you have been and where you would like to go.

Best podcast ever

This is absolutely my favorite podcast. Every episode makes me want to join the conversation which is of course not possible. But listening to Alice and Louise talking about art and everything that comes with it, is one of my highlights of the week. I’m glad you’re back.

Love Alice and Louise!

I love listening to these ladies. I should have written a review sooner, but here we are... They're informative, they're fun to listen to, and I like the outtakes at the end. Very personable and relatable.
