So after the months of hard work, the solo occurred. Great to see people getting the chance to interact with the art. It’s all well and good having the work in your studio and seeing it day after day. This only gives you a rough idea of how the finished crescendo will appear. That’s the thing with visual work, it only becomes art when it’s in the public domain and people can interact with it in their own way.
It’s the questions I like, viewers can spot all kinds of items within the work, often completely overlooked by the artist. Is it a fish? No idea but it could potentially point to a deep seated psychological trauma involving a fear of drowning/Christianity etc. A solo show is a sort of group therapy – your audience don’t know it but they are putting the pieces of your psyche back to together after the artist metaphorically exploded their own head creating the show.
