Life’s A Complicated Relationship!

May 16, 2013

complicated relationship

It’s been a while since I felt the level of freedom that I now have with the flow of ideas in my work, but the rough road I’ve been travelling on is serving me well. I’ve always felt you have to live your life through experience and then you can tell your story, if you have one. In that way your art becomes a relevant statement about your experience of being, linking you to the common threads of existence by which we are all bound.

I don’t think there is an absolute reason for being or purpose, though maybe that is our challenge, working out a way to feel relevant. It’s funny really but we can only truly see life from our own perspective, we are in one way so similar yet in another so completely different. So when I make art it reflects my life and thoughts which are full of extraordinary contradictions and shrouded in complete mystery, because I can’t find a truly definitive reason for anything. On those grounds my art doesn’t really have to make sense because it’s becomes a window into a mysterious world of refection and thought.


As an artist I find myself working in a society that has quite a rigid structure through education leisure and work, which I find difficult at times because it leads to compromise. Though as I get older I’m finding it easier to follow my own path, but to do it I’ve had to jump off into the abyss to explore my creativity free from the  judgmental pressures of conformity.


I don’t know why but I am always drawn back to the horse and rider and always have been, it’s the place where my ideas and thoughts  truly manifest themselves. Through the complex interactions I am able to express from the depths of  both my sub-conscious and conscious being and the possibilities just seem endless.

I have now taken that leap just like the rider above and am so thankful because my world has opened up once again and that feeling of wonder and excitement is a priceless one which only serves to remind me of the true values of my existence.
