THE ART OF FORMING IMAGERY

February 9, 2018

THE MYSTERY OF LIFE IS HARD TO KNOW

The Death of Life

I’ve occupied my life producing art to sustain a material existence in a life of perpetual struggle. Fighting a constant battle to maintain independence whilst searching for truths which I hoped could validate my existence with a perception of self-actualisation. Validation arrived at through the fluent transposition of sincere thought and feelings, through to expressed imagery.

ALL I EVER

Whilst the expression of ideas and thoughts may appear relatively simple to the outsider, it is not so in practice due to the sheer weight of influence behind our cognitive processes. The question of who we are through genetics, memory, experience and conditioning, all serve to complicate the clarity of definitive actions. Making it complex to actually understand who and what we are in relation to our broader circumstance. All this is further complicated by our personal growth and the perpetual change of  lifes circumstance.

A LITTLE ROMANTIC GESTURE

Right here and right now I feel that artists have a tremendous opportunity to explore the wider possibilities of  human expression, partly a result of the creative exploration following Dadaism’s unlocking of the artists cage. There’s also a growing liberalisation of western values and a technological revolution which offers greater human freedom to explore the possibilities of being. All of which is a beautiful gift to the empowerment of  humanity through art.

TIME FOR A BIT OF NEO DADA

Although there’s an infinite amount of work ahead for human evolution I do believe there are significant times and periods of change, such as we are experiencing at the moment. And for me this is where art plays a vital role, by questioning the establishment, deconstructing dogmatic oppression and offering a glimpse into future human consciousness. Art teaching us how to see the world through different eyes and encouraging different ways to feel and experience existence. In this sense art is really about immersive observation of life, critical analysis and an attempt to offer future insight, by shining a light towards an evolutionary direction with something new to behold.

ABSTRACT REALITY

For artists reacting to the follies of the establishment there is a conflict of interest because their livelihoods are pretty much dependent on the finances of the elite tiers of society. This is why artists have to fight to maintain their integrity in order to honour the inner truths which a devotion to art delivers to the soul. You see art by its nature is revolutionary and without rules, a state of anarchy where all the possibilities of humanity come together for a huge raucous party. conversely society is bound by simplistic rules, often governed by past values which hold humanity in bondage for the sake of convenience. Traditions of kingdoms and hierarchical structures undermine democracy and human freedom, holding people within established values such as the institutional subordination of women.

So it could be said that the artists process is about observation, contemplation and free expression. To produce visual imagery which reflects and projects content that is relevant to contemporary life. Imagery arrived at by any means that is available to the individual irrespective of past precedent or tradition.

IN THE MIDST OF THIS BUSY LIFE I WONDER WHO I AM

Tanks for looking and have a great day 🙂
