I have been researching much for what's going on inside of me, as well as ways I could move forward with my work creatively. I have been doing lots of free writing about where I'm at in my creative process and where I'm heading with my Body of Works for Gillian's class.
It's taken me a while to establish my theme and now that I've establish my storyline I am searching what that would actually look like that is authentic, vulnerable and real to me. I have known for sometime I wanted to take my art up a level in seriousness. I know that sounds silly and I'm not even sure what I mean by that exactly but it's what I wake up searching for and go to bed longing for. And I think for the first time, I'm starting to have an inkling. These pieces are evoking something deep inside of me and I'm also enjoying the process.
Using pieces of my drawings and mapping down and layering out has been a beautiful playground for me and I know I want to go deeper here. They are working well small and safe in my little journal and I'm looking for ways to go bigger without loosing my way.
What I do know... besides doing my TinyBagsofLove body of works, with a clear objective in mind, I have never intentionally worked towards putting a body of works together with a thought out theme of what's inside of me. I'm finally settling into the concept. I've been resisting this new process but I've been learning to surrender and move with it, instead of fight it. I am excited to see what unfolds.
