I had the opportunity once upon a time to do art in school and I didn’t take it. I instead opted for Chemistry, Biology and the like. Interesting certainly, but not really for keepers. I had to print out some uni Chem/Physics/Maths practice exams today for my boss’s son (Yep, that’s me with the time!) and in looking at them wondered why I ever bothered. Yet I enjoyed myself immensely – problem solving. I am a left brained girl with an earnest right brain,or perhaps I adapt to adapt?
But when I think that I had the chance to be taught art by this guy, I am disappointed.
Of course I didn’t know he made work like this back then.
Michael Peck’s work is currently in exhibition at the Metro 5 Gallery, I am crossing my fingers that I’ll get there before it concludes as it’s not too far from uni. My mum took my little sister (who is taught by him) there, and they came home raving. Now there’s incentive to get things finished by Thursday!
