…..I am gobsmacked…at myself! Hard to believe…but it has only just occurred to me …(occurred? how quaint! 😀😀) that I am a mixed media artist. Impossible for me to get my head round what has been hidden in plain sight!!! I call myself ‘a mixed media artist’ cos I use a very wide range of materials to create an art piece. (Referring only to the art process). But I have never really acknowledged to myself that I am a mixed media artist. I know I am spontaneous and in a bit of a tizzy when creating art cos I want to include the kitchen sink. But not for a moment have I owned that ‘description’. Wow!! I really do hate labels!!!!
Spontaneity is the watchword that informs my art practice. My artwork celebrates the energy of abstract expressionism.
'why not?' underlines my creative process. Forget the box! Its obsolete...it's all about whatever shape you want to throw on that dance floor! The process drives my practice!! For me, work well done is work I have thoroughly enjoyed making...work that has made me think, sweat, cry, scream and come back for more!!! Work that gets my back up; pushes me...gives me cause for doubt. Makes me push in order for 'why not?' to become possible. Boundaries? What boundaries?
