Prep, previous work
I feel like I have learnt a lot from the residency, it has given me chance to really look at my process.
I need to write, to express my thoughts to get them out of my mind before I am able to focus. That writing automatically, gives me an insight and awareness into my thought patterns.
I also found there were conversations happening between my verbal thought and none thoughts, my drawings, which let insight, awareness and answers to my thoughts come through. This is something i began to notice in my drawings, but i think is a different stand to my work.
I notice that when my mind was clear and I was focusing, using my own sensations to feel, it let emotions come through, which gave my expression a whole feel and look.
I feel i understand my work more now, and my expression feels more real and authentic.
Now I am able to see how other parts of my work all fit together, where I have used colour to help me express emotions. Which i think is where my work will be going next.
