Dog Art is God Art
GOD ART DOG ART stems from an idea based around the notion of nature, art and creative inspiration. I have tried to represent a concept, that inspiration is born out the conception of an idea stemming from a universal truth, knowledge given to the receiver without thought to produce a tangible philosophy.
The word god is used here, not to describe a religious figure,
but a universal energy .
The idea for [God Art is Dog Art], is this tangible philosophy that I have found difficult to define or am I trying to define the undefinable?
Andre Gide suggests 'Art is a collaboration between God and the artist, and the less the artist does the better' Andre Gide
I hope this doesn't sound pretentious.
My interest in art stemmed from a vision I received when I spent 6 months in southern India in the early 90's, when I returned to England I studied at UCE and gained a BA (Hon) in Art and Design, then went on to study for a PGCE at Plymouth and later for a masters degree at Wolverhampton. during this time studying art, it became clear to me that my art work has its own style, I have been able to produce art on a subconscious level and the work I have produced has been a representation of the times.
- these handmade contemporary objects moulded from foam and covered with paper maché are the results of everything I have been trying to describe in the written work above, I hope you enjoy the work. And that you feel inspired by it .

The idea for godart/dogart creation was created from God being an artist. I'm not using the word god to represent a religious figure, it is to represent an aspect of the universal truth - a tangible philosophy born out of inspiration - knowledge without thought (c) Lorraine Chatwin 2012 email@example.com ~ www.lchatwin.co.uk
