How has the tutoring experience been? Have you turored aspiring artist before?
I have been tutoring mid-career and emerging artists before. The experience of tutoring it’s always enriching for both parts, and in the specific case of Melle it has been especially engaging from an emotional point of view, because of her subtle work with human feelings and soul.
Tutoring aspiring artists is delicate because you have to push them to recognize their voice and create a discourse, but at the same time without being too invasive. First of all, a deep understanding of the investigation is needed and then you make many questions about everything, technique, medium, sizes, etc. Only questioning their work they will find the answers.
