Form, line and word

I’m still very much in a transitional period of my life as an artist, which I’m finding both complex and profound. I feel it is an essential step towards in building a sufficient depth of character and understanding that will give me the freedom I require to be creative in an open way. Sometimes I feel like I’m caught in a raging storm and at the centre I exist in isolation confronted by vague notions of my own truths and armed only with what wisdom life has brought me. I no longer feel lured by the shallow temptations of glory and the rewards of success, because the value I’m searching for exists within the parameters of an exploration of self and not from a search for hollow accolades.

I do wonder if my current thinking is in fact a stage of life or a change in outlook and understanding of life and art. Though this is very much a moot point because living is of the moment and it was having conditioned expectations that eroded my search for a truth in my own art. For now I’m learning to trust in my intuition and to explore the ideas that feel right and true to myself and not looking to the reactions it will face when exposed to others. Work without the soft charm that seeks attention for what I feel are the wrong reasons. Again with expectations, I never expected to have this conflict between methods of visual communication, where the dynamic truth of exploration could be compromised by a search for affirmation and recognition.

Now as part of my process I draw and write as freely as I can and the results are like casual marks left as a trace of my personal journey, which is in part a discovery of the unknown self. I do know there is a lot more to art than pretty pictures and accessorizing comfortable lifes but I was never able to explore it enough to satisfy my curiosity untill now. My struggle with the static quality of sculpture led me to the sketchbook and when the sketching wasn’t enough it led me to the word and writing down my thoughts.
