Hello Everyone! It’s been a while since I have last posted. Life caught up with me and a lot has happened: personally, professionally, geographically – really complex changes – yet, this is not the place nor the time to talk about it. It goes without saying, that it’s stressful while you are in the midst of things (hence no posts), but at the end of every tunnel is usually light and I made it to the other side and came out just fine – if not better. So, no worries. I’m back and here comes my next post:
Here are a few pictures of a sculpture (a work in progress at the time) that unfortunately did not survive my last move – that’s life. As a wise man once said:
Sometimes when I photograph my work I see it differently. Mainly it helps me to see “mistakes” that I hadn’t seen with the naked eye. For example, in the following pictures I noticed that her forehead seems too flat and the arms seem not quite proportional. Have you noticed it too, that photos help you to see your art differently?
“Art is made to disturb. Science reassures. There is only one valuable thing in art; the thing you cannot explain.”
– Georges Braque
My watercolor instructor says if the painting shows “everything” and does not leave room for the viewer to “finish” it it’s a boring painting – to say the least – or may be even a bad one. The Braque quote reminded me of that.
