This commission definitely stretched and challenged me….it was one of those ‘I don’t think I can do this’ commissions when self doubt hits minutes after you have agreed to take on the commission!
First I dragged my feet…..then I basically hid my head in the sand by avoiding working on it. Then as the deadline loomed the commission whipped me into shape! I actually worked till 3am one very trying day!
But what a brilliant learning curve it was!!! Now I know the value of making ‘mock ups’!!!!!
I learnt a lot about myself though……I really love art and I’m very determined….(I need to stop doubting myself)
Spontaneity is the watchword that informs my art practice. My artwork celebrates the energy of abstract expressionism.
'why not?' underlines my creative process. Forget the box! Its obsolete...it's all about whatever shape you want to throw on that dance floor! The process drives my practice!! For me, work well done is work I have thoroughly enjoyed making...work that has made me think, sweat, cry, scream and come back for more!!! Work that gets my back up; pushes me...gives me cause for doubt. Makes me push in order for 'why not?' to become possible. Boundaries? What boundaries?
