I am done my Fine Arts and Art History degree, and I'll be heading back to Uni next semester for an Art History Masters. Lots of art.
I have not neglected my art though. Actually, I feel as though I am slowly crescendoing to a renaissance of artwork (I hope). I've had a full, round year now to gradually cleanse myself of what is worth discarding of my Fine Arts degree at Concordia... and, I think there's quite a bit that's worth discarding in my case. There was no way I could have known it at the time, but the environment of Concordia wasn't conducive towards the type of art I'd like to do. I've talked to a few people from the program that have echoed what I've said: if you want to do something with a graphic arts style within a Fine Arts context, there is a lot of room and opportunity. I don't think Canadian universities have quite caught on to this yet, unless someone can tell me differently (and I'd love to hear).
So, after a long year, I've begun to sweep away some of the guilt involved with doing something like Fine Arts, and with bringing a graphic arts style to it. We'll see what happens.
