Day 13....magic words hurt my head
Tonight was my presentation to half of my school. Describing my work to this point, where I want to go and what I want to achieve in the next two years. As with anything, criticism is a must. Constant feedback only allows you to grow more. I feel as if that half hour not only made think and reconsider some of my actions as an artist, but as a person in general. Why? What? How? are consistently questions we are trained to ask ourselves, but what if you don't have answers? Why color? Why painting? These answers I do not know. That was an extremely awesome realization. Depth over rides breadth sometimes, and this is one of those occasions. I have never "allowed" myself to go deep and search for the answers, I look to the surface for explanation. My goal with this journey over the next few months was to research pigments and tell there story, but I feel as if I need to research myself and tell my story, for the first time.
