Greetings everyone, prior to today these last days has been a low energy day for me if you know what I mean. It was so low I started to question my own existence and meanwhile, a colleague noticed this and challenged me for being anti-social. I replied "anti-social", I don't think so and I startled as I tried to argue. I came to experience this low energy because I was thinking a lot about my next project in the studio and not physically making anything. It's amazing how an artist solitude can make one far removed from the world, what I'm saying basically is how your body, mind, and soul easily gives into the act of solitude and you do not even know you are doing it. Since I commenced grad school, every experience in my practice has been very important and helpful. Helpful in relation to all evaluations I received from my Professors concerning my studio practice progress. It's these evaluations I turn to when I'm experiencing a low energy in my studio.
However, I feel a lot better now, ideas on next project booming but on the other hand, I feel I'm a slacker because it took this long to get creative again... this is absolutely the last time I'll feel this way. It's the "rebirth" of a fresh mind and more clearer thoughts in my practice. Also, it's intriguing to be aware of my monkey brain, I think of so many possibilities of making some new stuff and the next minute I ignore a previous thought because a new idea, which appears more interesting comes through.
In the light of this, I decided to take the act of looking back seriously as I mentioned in my very first blog post. I have always been fascinated by J.M.W. Turner's painting, especially the artist very sublime landscape paintings. This romantic painterly quality is the reason why I explore the use of my brush in painting. J.M.W. Turner is regarded also as the painter of light, I too enjoy the use of light in my paintings. Absolutely, the reason I'm going to look deeper into Turner's paintings as a reference point in my coming projects.
