The art of creativity

March 10, 2014

Hello Darling

 

Slowly but surely my mind is broadening through my drawing, which is leading to a greater sense of freedom and that feeling of frustration is ebbing away more and more each day. It’s that feeling when you know there is something fundamentally wrong but you know what not it is. So whilst I work clearly and in a broader way with great conviction, I still don’t have the absolute clarity that I once took for granted. And I still don’t know if it will return because my creativity is so open that I really don’t want to shut any doors in order to develop a few specific ideas. I sometimes wonder if there is a level of wisdom and empirical knowledge that eventually shines a light on many solutions and ways of doing and making beyond the single approach. Also my reality kicks in at times because I feel that no matter what I do I simply can’t generate a wide interest and have given up on this notion. Sculpture can hold you in a place so strongly and I don’t feel like being held at the moment because the freedom of drawing is enough in itself to satisfy my curiosity. When I think back over the past year and look at all the drawings that I have done with all the new ideas, I think it’s an amazing achievement (my first pat on the back for some time lol ) and it has taught me so much about creativity and the human mind. There is no single way to create and no formula, just a combination of many converging aspects, that either hit, miss or run side by side, which may or may not translate into a coherent concept.
One thing that has astonished me is the level of intensity that you can endure and how much you can achieve without any support or encouragement from real world entities. During this period I found the real reasons that I chose to be an artist and they are a combination of the intellectual and the spiritual and through the development of these aspects of being, life feels so much more complete for me. Now that I’ve found my way again I shall protect it more vigilantly so that I never have to endure such a period of inertia and feel that weight pinning me down into an insignificant state of being. I will stand up and fight for my beliefs now, so they can’t be crushed again and not worry about all the factors beyond my control. I don’t care about the art world and what it expects, my only concern is my creativity and producing work beyond my best through the development of my own concepts in my own way. My anti-art idea was an intuitive response to the art world but I feel an inciteful one and is taking a great relevance in my life as my ideas and thoughts stray from the confines and conformity of institutionalised existence as a way of being.
