Footsteps in the dark

July 19, 2015



I find myself continually reflecting upon my art because of the constantly evolving reality which is stimulated through the creative process. Life is never static in art because the energy levels required,  create such a dynamic set of circumstances that there is no constant. So these circumstances tend to contradict the imposed order of society, as you work without a predicted outcome. It’s the old abyss analogy, the incumbent requisite for artists to venture into the tormented depths of being, as an open exploration into the dark , looking for a tenuous link or connection.

For the moment I’m concerned with developing equestrian compositions in a free and open way, looking for new ideas and ways of expressing my thoughts about life. I’m still feeling that I have no need to make my art pretty for the sake of it because my current purpose is to innovate new ideas and evolve the relationship between the horse and the human. The metaphorical content of my work feels right up there with my thoughts and reflections and I’m surprised at how many new possibilities  are out there waiting to be discovered. As I write my blog and make new drawings I’m astonished at the clear link between the two which makes me realise that my connectivity is right up where it needs to be. And I now feel assured that my creative flow is no longer bound by the inhibitions which society engenders in our difference.

Life has taught me that I really don’t need to labour my ideas by concentrating on singular possibilities, because my strength is more about searching than consolidation. I’m just not a marketing man and I see art as an exploratory adventure and because of this the marks I make in my drawings are often a sufficient enough gesture to satisfy my soul. In this regard I have changed dramatically and I feel it’s because I have worked through my insecurities and no longer feel the need to prove myself or seek praise for what I do. And I’m pleased about this because it is in my new state of mind where the freedom exists for me to work and realise authenticity.
