A FORK IN THE ROAD


Lately I have been struggling to finish anything meaningful art-wise. I’ve had many starts, but few conclusions. I am pleased with the work that I have completed this year and feel that I’m on top of my art. The problem is as I see it, is the fact that I have tackled too many large drawings. These take a considerable amount of time and motivation.

I thought this was the perfect time to take stock of my direction in art. I need to make some changes, and I will.

My forthcoming exhibition in Hobart, in July, will give me the perfect opportunity to see how far I have come in the last 5 years.

I really feel that I need a change in direction and have started a new journey. You will see evidence in the form of a new drawing tomorrow. This is a smaller work and quite different to what I have been drawing this year. Smaller works take less time and aren’t as intensive as the work I have been accustomed to.

There is still much more to consider such as, do I change to a different medium? Do I try a completely new subject, a new style?

I want my art to remain fresh and individual. I’m prepared to take risks. He who dares, wins!

As you can see, I’ve reached a fork in the road …

Tomorrow: And now for something completely different …
