Stirring the pot… waking the creative.

Ok, so as I am sure most if not all artists have a period of ‘stuckness’, this one has attached itself… viscous and difficult to dissolve.

I have ideas.

I even have experiments on the go, yet that familiar shroud of disengagement clouds my sight. So what do I do to move forward, lift the obstructive veil… I delve into automatic writing processes and doodling. Where this goes and what this does in terms of moving me on, I am unsure. What I do know is that it does loosen and distract, sometimes for hours ( the guilt of this weighs heavily into the dilemma).

So here are a couple of the latest distractions… to muse or perhaps amuse, but there is something significant about acknowledging this as ‘all part of the process’ by posting here… I think?

  1. A great acknowledgment. And of course that process is at times difficult – it HAS to be, doesn’t it? It is the charge eventually… which you are representing visually, it would seem. Out of shadow comes inspiration; darkness leads to light…
    Also, after your show… it’s just what has to happen, stuckness…struggle…isn’t it? Bum. But REAL!
