Our Beautiful Life

March 2, 2014



For an artist, life is based on choices, you make some good calls and you make some bad ones. Of late I’ve made some good decisions that have led me through a challenging time and I’m finally starting to realise my potential.  I can now see and feel the transformation from a disparate and disengaged sculptor to a flourishing  artist with a vision, backed up with  a growing confidence and passion. I’ve felt hampered by my past for so long and it was really holding me back in a way that is unhealthy for progressive art, where being in the moment brings such great rewards. We are all a product of our experience and social engineering, which is what makes each and every one of us unique and I’ve realised that I still have a lot to celebrate. I’m lucky, I have a means of communicating on a deep level and also a contribution to make through my work and though I was hampered for some time, fate has been kind to me, protecting my integrity and finally releasing me from bondage and setting me free. This artistic freedom combined with a growing confidence is my greatest gift and will facilitate my transformation into an artist of substance.
I always had great belief as an artist, but found it challenging to realise my true vision, I touched on it many times but needed life experience to broaden my horizons and only with that knowledge could I be liberated. To be broken helps you to undergo a reconstruction  and my experience allowed me to connect on a deeper spiritual level, where I’m no longer guided by the voices from my past. Of late I’ve experienced a coming together of various elements of my life and a renewed belief that art can be created purely as an independent expression within the whole.  I’m starting to work with a freedom and confidence that I’ve earned through time with perseverance and it’s the real me, I no longer expect anything in return other than great joy from my spiritual and artistic growth. I have three beautiful children and I owe it to them to set an example and make their passage into the world, one where  optimism and hope prevail and to show them how to realise their dreams.
I now have a direction in which I write and draw to openly explore the breadth of my whole and it’s yielding answers, with new ideas appearing constantly, their invention often remaining a mystery to me. I can even feel now with my move forward a need to articulate my approach in a theoretical way that demonstrates a direction and that should move my writing into a less personal vein.
