Watch THE SOAK UP from Venus & the Cat x Charley Peters.
Episode 6 comes in three chapters with renowned British artist Dr. Charley Peters.
THE SOAK UP episode 6.1 from Venus & the Cat with Dr. Charley Peters on having a noisy mind, washing machines, stillness and intuition through art, thinking vs feeling, the influence of the studio on your work and the impact of the environment, the 'always on' of the creative process, watching murder docs to switch off, the person behind and within the art, the emotion within colour palletes and the translation of your work.
MASSIVE APOLOGIES for the standard lockdown wi-fi shambles. There's a bit of buffering throughout on our side - 8 and 11 mins are a touch sketchy, but Charley is perfectly audible throughout and that's all that matters!
THE SOAK UP episode 6.2 with Charley Peters on painting intuitively, preparation and ideas, getting a projector, the experience of your art IRL, order from chaos, layering multimedia and creating surface depth and composition, visual language, the briefing and creation process and ownership of your work. Plus some f-bombs ;)
THE SOAK UP episode 6.3 with Charley Peters on 3D work and ceramics (and not wanting to touch pottery!), on blowing up kilns, NFTs and the "garbage bandwagon", taking a break from art post PHD, academia, returning to art and developing and growing in style, daydreaming, constant internal monologues and a busy mind.
