So this new little series I am working is a bower birds next of images all thrown together in random order. Having said that there is some order in that chaos and because I have created so many of these types of works over the years, I think my subconscious brain 'knows' where to place the images.
Composition is such a complex thing when you really think about it, there is so much to consider, but i believe the more compositions and artworks you create, the better at composition you will become, because in effect you train that part of your brain to recognise good composition. I always tell my students to constantly create new works all the time, the more you do the better you will become. You have to exercise your creative muscle
'Mofu' started his existence as a ceramic mask but it was evident that he was not destine just to be a 3D creation. A couple of days ago I decided to transform him into a stencil design to be used in my 2d work. I have to say I am really happy with how he turned out. I think he is pretty nice and I decided to give him some reindeer horns. I plan on giving him different attachments and I am looking at developing a line of t-shirt designs based on him and several other characters including my Kitty.
So next weekend I have my final art fair in Norway. I have never done well at this particular art fair, mainly because the type of people who attend are quite conservative and my work doesn't fit the conservative mentality. But I don't care, it gets my name out there in the community (not that it matters much anymore since i am leaving). I am selling mainly masks with a few works on paper, won't be going over board as I am in the process of packing and shipping my stuff back to Oz. So fingers crossed for a few sales to help me on my journey.
I am going to end with this latin quote which is my moto:
Aut inveniam viam aut faciam - means "I shall either find a way or make one".
Hope you all have a creative and inspiring weekend/week a head!
