Art is....

Art is
Passion & possibilities, experiments & excursions, responsive reflections, instant/laboured, complex & layered, affirming, physical (paint big!!), fragmented & consuming, an allegorical narrative, the everyday, moments, happy accidents, honest & direct, distant, the ‘bits n pieces’,structured/cluttered, a language, organic/fluid, inspiring, an escape, ‘its dark in here’, distracting, plastic, ambigious,silent, psychotic, abstracted, distracting, explosive, informative, fun, beyond boundaries, problematic, iconic,fragile, subtle, imagined observations of the vicissitudes that make up the day! Oh & it is a matter of opinion….. But there is nothing so lonely as a bare wall !!!

More time to play!

one of those moments hit me last wk, i seen the proverbial light!
after being battered & bruised for the past 6 yrs i ran into a broadside delivered from some fellow union delegates….
no need to delve into specifics… a clash of principals/wills & a major performance
close to becomming physical..
i walked away & immediately gave my resignation from my role as delegate & as a union member ( a bitter pill as i am a firm believer in unions & their role in the contempory workplace) but i dont suck up to anyone, will not be intimidated/pushed into ‘boys club rules’ that are against all that i believe in. Yet the upshot is its like a weight has been lifted & an immediate result is that now I have more time to spend on MY ART! lets PLAY

need

I need to get a bigger camera- more pixels & learn how to use it. Am quickly finding out that alot of my images are too small for this world… its all awork in progress…

the vicissitudes

lost & wandering on a bleak Friday night, been a long week. work is chaotic, i’m a trainer/ union delegate in a large Distribution Centre… fun, personal life is messy, tec etc- which all can provide some great fodder for those creative juices… hmmm might just play

loosing my online V

Tis about time i see what the online world has to offer. Being a complete novice- I only broke my email virginity 2 weeks ago ( & that was only due to work & its related realities), had a mobile phone for some 12 months etc. It isnt due to any ‘techno phobia’ or such, I’ve simply rarely had the need nor inclination ( until now) to play with all this STUFF. Hmmmm possibilities. I f i ever wish to be able to ditch my regular job type job, i’ve got ot get off my butt & embrace these tools that can only expand/ enhance my visual vocab & world. I wanna PLAY. & maybe be lucky enough to one day earn a living off my images………….
