Spiraling into Control

October 27, 2013

spiraling into control

 

It can be so difficult to keep a balanced perspective as an artist because there are no rules or absolutes which make your life a delicate balancing act. There are life long themes that seem to hold things together but it’s the reactions and treatment in the real world that can at times have a disproportionate effect on ones work. Part of my battle at the moment is trying to extracate myself from the profound disappointment I feel towards the British arts establishment that has at no point even recognised my work.
I currently feel the need to produce my work free from any bitterness or for any reactive reasons, so that I can make the work I believe in with a smile on my face. I want my work to be a celebration of life not a social commentary or a diluted political statement, more of a timeless philosophical statement. And because I know what direction I want to go in I will take it and go for it through my writing, drawing and sculpture. It is a complicated challenge because I have to just work to my own guiding principles and there will be an uncertain fate for my work, but the pleasure and satisfaction will be immense because I believe so strongly in my art and the possibilities. So just to live a life doing what you believe in and with the strenght to carry it out regardless of your status in society is profoundly satisfying.
I will continue to criticise the establishment and arts industry because I feel that is incumbent upon me and a duty for artists in order to create change. Art should be for the people and not service a need for the elite in society. I always wanted to be a peoples artist which is one of my constants and I have not wavered, which is why I like my work to be accessible in all ways.
In the end it comes down to strength of character and belief, you take charge of your destiny through conscious decisions and you go for what you believe in as an artist, and your work tells that story. Right now I’m experiencing one of the better chapters of my life and the story line feels right, for how long that is I don’t know but I’ve learnt to enjoy being in the moment.
When you do what you believe in there is no need for any Hype, bullshit or pretence because your work says it all.
