So I have to be completely honest here, I have been feeling very very stuck with my art recently.
I have not had a lot of drive, or desire to do much, and working from home now has its own challenges.
This morning, after a good bodywork and meditation session, I have come up with a brief for myself. Because I really do need structure, I need some kind of framework to work inside of. So I have decided that for the next four weeks, I would create artworks "from the heart", whatever that means (this came to me in a meditative state, so sometimes it won't make much sense to my head...). I want to take time to let artworks be, so often I rush, I feel I need to bring a conclusion, or else they'll escape me or something. I want to build them, slowly, gently. I need to give myself and the artworks room to be, to breathe. To really listen, to go slow, to love every step, enjoy every mark. To trust these artworks, however small or insignificant they may feel, will feed into everything else I do. To make them, in spite of my head wanting to wait for the "perfect" time, place, material, to make them "aimlessly", without the pressure of needing them to be somewhere specific, for somewhere or someone specific. To let them grow, like children and plants. To take time to appreciate their beauty.
This is what I will do until 12th March.
