I recently decided to devote myself entirely to my art. It’s been a long time coming. I’ve always been a painter. I’m good at it and more so than that, I love it. I have a long way to go to be the artist that I think I’m capable of being but I know that I can be great at it.
I have an aesthetical vision and I want to share it with the world. I have ideas for music videos, murals, clothing, sculptures, so many series of paintings, I can’t even count. I have so much inside me that needs to be created-- that I need to create. I can’t wait any longer and every second I’m not creating art, is a painful second wasted.
I will be treating the next two years of my life like I’m getting my masters. I am working on a series of paintings in the next six months that I want finished so I can start shopping them around to galleries, submitting them to juried exhibitions, and building up my body of work. I will be updating this blog regularly with my thoughts on exhibitions I’ve visited, brainstorming for artwork that I will be creating, critiques of my work, and even philosophy and ideas that are consuming me at the moment.
A major critique I have of myself is that I’m not always thoughtful enough with my work. I don’t take the time to conceptualize what I’m trying to convey and if my imagery is successfully communicating that message. I will also be using this blog to research and explore ideas to their depth. I want to be asking important questions and answering them as thoughtfully as possible with my work.
I cannot wait for this next chapter of my life! I have to catch up on so many lost years. For now, I’m excited to share my process and unfolding body of work with you!
