I’ve been doing a lot of thinking recently about my work and it’s left me feeling stuck. I am at a point now where I have started to pick apart my practice and really begin to understand what my artistic concerns are and where I want to take my work, but I’m struggling with moving it forward.
I have a couple of projects that I’m keen to develop to see where they lead, and I also want to expand my studio practice, to experiment and examine the connecting themes of my work. Over the next few months I’m going to test materials and to explore what it is about certain things that draw me in, experimenting with texture, line and materials, perhaps incorporating more sculptural elements into my work. Yesterday I began; I’m looking at ‘line’ this week and playing with collage and different compositions.
I’m going to be using this blog to document and examine the work I produce and I will be sharing what I do, wherever I can, with whoever I can, in the hope that it will expose me to critique to help me to move my work forward, and by risking criticism, it will hopefully help me to flex my ‘I don’t care’ muscle and keep doing the work.
