Product details

A Room of Her Own is my essay and personal reflection upon the requirements for prosperous creativity. In it, I explore the delicate balance between the realm of the creator and the work being created, taking inspiration from quotes gathered from Virginia Woolf's seminal text 'A Room of One's Own'. The work is in four movements, played attacca (without pause):

I. Web - "…imaginative work (is) like a spider's web, attached ever so lightly perhaps, but still attached to life at all four corners."
II. Epigraph
III. Anon - "I would venture to guess that Anon… was often a woman."
IV. Incandescence -"The mind of an artist, in order to achieve the prodigious effort of freeing whole and entire the work that is in (her), must be incandescent…. There must be no obstacle in it."

Contents note:

I. Web -- II. Epigraph -- III. Anon -- IV. Incandescence.
