The Impossibility of Truth

February 18, 2019

I’ve recently come to a stark realisation about the effect of social engineering upon my soul and life’s purpose. In particular how my own human truth is compromised by my truth within the social context of society and how my approach to art has been influenced.

I’ve become increasingly aware of how society constrains our curiosity and dreams. But making art has shone a light for me and allowed me to see through what I once believed. How we’re indoctrinated into formal schools of approach to all subject matter and how difficult it is to think beyond these parameters.

I can say that I still don’t feel entirely free to think without external influence and that I have no fixed idea of what is true to my purpose or if there is a truth. But at least for now my thoughts are becoming more fluid as I address the concerns of an authentic artistic expression.

As a one time traditionalist I’ve had to turn away from a more classical approach to art and look for something new which satisfies a more fundamental urge to express my humanity. Art that is not about institutional conformity but instead a free and open-ended drive without an expectation of outcome.

Following a confrontation of my conformity I’ve reached a turning point where I no longer wish to follow a creative life within the parameters laid out before me. This is more within my thinking than practice in that I want to be able to think and explore without constraint.

Art for me is that place without boundaries which is why it’s crucial to a healthy society and why it’s so important that some artists seek a deep and meaningful truth. Here art is about leading thoughts and the courage to explore possibilities that may fail to be understood or even fail on a conceptual level.

So I want to make art which searches through the discomfort as well as the comfort of being. Art which challenges what we think we know, art which directs us to a truth. Art which opens our hearts and minds to possibilities that once felt beyond our grasp. Art which allows us to see from a new perspective, art beyond our comfort zones.

This is my challenge and in this next chapter of my life I will look to follow the impossible truths of life. To express myself and just see what happens as I return to my roots and earlier approach to life and art. The glory days before I was knobbled by the whole formality of the stinky art world.

Thanks for reading and have a lovely day 🙂
