Abstract Art Experiments
I recently got a new sketchbook and I immediately knew what I wanted to do with it. Art with less expectation. I just want to move my tools around on the paper until something cool happens. This feeling has been growing from my art play with asemic writing. Asemic - /əˈsem.ɪk/ - using lines and symbols that look like writing, but do not have any meaning. Surrendering to shapes, marks and forms without projecting too much meaning into them has been extremely liberating for my creativity and perspective on what is aesthetically pleasing when it comes to art. The way we experience art is not objective. A piece...
Roots From The Vortex
This one told me it was finished. Knowing when to stop is just as important as the rest of the process. I’m glad I stuck with it long enough to pull it out of the vortex, and I’m happy with where it landed. I think I’ll jump into some canvas work next, just to mix up the vibe. The clothing is inspired by my new favorite fashion. A Japanese art called “boro” Thank you for being on this journey with me.
There is beauty in the struggle, and harmony in the chaos. Accepting the paradox is how transmute. The desire to exit the wheel becomes the wheel. If the old self made it this far, imagine where the current self can go.
The recent canvas work has been giving me more perspective and permission to stretch the boundaries of the digital work. This one isn’t done but I’m having fun trying new things. Whoever this guy is, I think he might be making more appearances lol. Maybe a graphic novel is using me to write itself, who knows but I’m here for all of it. Enjoy this day.
Becoming the way
“The impediment to action advances action. What stands in the way, becomes the way.”-Marcus AureliusI am no longer pulling away from my own doubts and insecurities. I’m learning to lean into them. The more I press against the blockages, the more I realize that they’re leading me into my best self. I’m driven by everything I already have instead of the things I think I want. This is the way.
