My Life’s Just An Arty Road Trip

May 26, 2013



I now feel I have to write and draw in order to find a way forward with ideas and concepts, my direction  is not entirely clear and very much dependant on the results of a more open thought process. There are always options and sometimes it’s difficult to choose one to pursue particularly when your creative mind is fluid and lucid. I realise the more you focus on an area the better you become, through synaptic plasticity and I feel that my neural activity is very much concentrated on a broad conceptual exploration but time is against me as I have to turn my creativity into commodities to support my material needs. It’s an unbearable compromise that I just can’t get used to but without this time to develop my ideas my work would not develop sufficiently to satisfy my being. The incredible tension that exists at the core of my being through challenging circumstance only fuels my determination to explore my creativity to a deeper and more meaningful level. I now know you have to make a conscious push to develop as a human being for there is no magic bullet, just a straight trade, you get out what you put in and a lazy approach offers little reward. There are times when I have grown tired because I felt the struggle is too great but perversely it’s the struggle and failures that have taught me the most and fuelled my growth as a visual artist. It almost helps to feel you have something to prove to the world from your embattled position in obscurity because you have to come out fighting with a steel resolve and total belief. At times there are no resting places as you become locked into an intense struggle and for the last two years I have been consumed by a personal battle to bring greater meaning and truth to my work where I’ve found no easy answers and though I have travelled far I have reached no absolute conclusions beyond finding that an open approach is beneficial to a more connected and soulful expression. The last couple of years have been part of a life changing process for me where I’m finally leaving the country roads and hitting the freeway, I’ve loosely defined a direction, found a path to creativity less the compromise and now just need to hit the gas and leave refection city. 😉  (I couldn’t resist the metaphors)
