This week whilst standing in front of all my current works in progress, I began to ask myself…
“What is my role as an artist?”
As I moved my eyes across the surfaces, I couldn’t help but feel this intense sense of curiosity and wonder. As if taking a moment to see this painting from the perspective of the voyeur. I looked at the lines that danced their way across the surface, and the energy held within a single stroke of buttery paint. I looked at the contrast and colour as if it was the first time I had opened my eyes.
I stood in the very same position as I had in its moment of creation, and in this very moment I realised something important…
In the space of just a matter of minutes I was completely TRANSPORTED.
AS AN ARTIST I LIVE FOR THIS MOMENT OF … PAUSE …
The moments of pondering, wondering and asking “how the f…k did that happen?!”
MY ROLE AS AN ARTIST IS TO CREATE AN EXPERIENCE. It’s to LEAD you to CURIOSITY.
Take your moment of … PAUSE … grab a cup of coffee and settle in for Episode 11 of Daring Creatively.
