Freaky Forest

February 12, 2015


Today I ventured back into my cold and damp studio after about two months of drawing in the warmth of a house, the truth is that I have not felt well enough to endure the cold and damp on my back after all my recent kidney and bladder infections, dating back to September. The problem was that whenever I tried to get on with my normal life, I would get a chill or start to feel unwell again, though it didn’t stop me from writing and drawing.  But I feel better now and so I can return to working in uncomfortable conditions and start to exercise myself back into shape, so that I can focus some attention to my dying art of sculpture.

Today in my studio was a day spent tidying and trying to do make some ceramic sculpture, though I couldn’t help but play with some of the sculptures lying around, in the end I made a start with my sculptures on sticks. It was an idea which I had last year and sketched out whilst sitting in the car, and one in which the sculptures are almost like trees, perched on tall slender columns, “Freaky Forest” sums it up nicely 🙂 .

Going back into my studio after a break allowed me to see my sculpture afresh and I realised that I have developed quite a lot of late. which meant I could see areas of my work which need to be improved. I will admit to feeling a little disappointment in the realisation that I need to come up with some new developments to bring the work further forward , however it’s a good sign really. Complacency gets me nowhere and art is a fruit from the great challenges, so I’m up for a bit of a battle.

In reflecting upon my work I saw some solid ideas that are quite sophisticated and I also saw some work that shows potential but is not resolved. It is those tentative ideas and gestures that I need to consolidate, because they will hopefully provide the diversity I need to stretch my creativity to a satisfactory level and move another step up my ladder. As always I feel teased by my possibility and unable to access it without the necessary struggle and sacrifice, but if it was all easy and laid out before me then it would become meaningless.
