I find it so helpful to think about the process involved when a piece is created. The sketches, planning inspiration, pretty much all the things that you do when you’re a studying art or working on a project. With that in mind, I’ve been trying to give more and more detail about different pieces, and really thinking about the process behind the art whether that’s drawing inspiration from art seen in a gallery or just copying a bottle that’s in front of you.
One of my favourite current artists is Robin Sealark who makes videos all about her art process and changes in her style as it evolves. It’s a real inspiration to me and keeps me motivated even when work and life act as distractions. I would highly recommend the below video to anyone interested in thinking about art as more than just the final pieces they produce. Robin draws on her own experience and puts together clips of her past videos that conveys a message that I think anyone create can totally relate to.
My posts are not nearly as informative as her videos, but it’s an aim for myself. I want to also inspire others to challenge and make links between their own experiences and develop their skills in a way that works with their life. Work, family, friends, other commitments only contribute to creative growth rather than hinder it, that’s the idea anyway.
