Tout Près Art  Expression • tu·preh·art • French for very close; to feel closer; to come together; or to make a connection with art.

This is an apology letter to the both of us for how long it took me to let things go.

Sometimes words aren’t enough.

It is up to you to see the beauty in everyday things.

Take a closer look and tell us what you feel.

Tout Près is French for very close; meaning we want you to feel closer.

Tout Près Art is one part online journal and the other part a series of collaborative pop-up destinations; an ongoing conversational project that explores the many ways we experience different art forms through your senses.

You are going to break your promise. I understand. And I hold my hands over the ears of my heart, so that I will not hate you.

Be patient with yourself.

Regardless of all this online encouragement, give yourself some time.
Get off-line and make time for what matters most. Work on your art. Work on yourself.

Thank you again for your friendship and support, may the beginning of this new year be the year you do more for you.

There are two ways to reach me: by way of kisses or by way of the imagination. But there is a hierarchy: the kisses alone don’t work.

Why didn’t it happen between us? Why did I fail? Why did you come close enough… and not closer?

If you were to press your heart close up against somebody else’s heart eventually your hearts will start beating at the same time.
Two little babies in an incubator, their hearts will beat at the same time.
So if you know somebody in your life that is prone to anxiety and if you happen to be a calm person, you could hug them. Heart to heart and hopefully their heart will slow down to yours.

It’s impeccable how brutal the truth can be at times. You can only admire it. Usually, we walk around constantly believing ourselves. I’m okay, we say. I’m alright. But sometimes the truth arrives on you, and you can’t get it off. That’s when you realize that sometimes it isn’t even an answer - it’s a question.
