It is raining today and I have a lot of work to do – preparing shipment for an exhibition, preparing images and application for a new competition, finishing my current project but I am doing none of these – instead I have started a new blog and have to decide now what this will be about. I am procrastinating on painting. But this is okay too. You cannot force the muse to do her work. And sometimes – doing just computerwork can be as creative as the painting itself.
My main goal will be to talk about ART and anything that is related to that. I think about giving some insights into my work, how I work, the practical aspects, the inspirational process, my commitments and I want to talk about issues I have come across over the last years which are really bugging me a lot. Things which could be improved if only people were aware of them.
Artists sometimes inherit some attitudes out of ignorance and carelessness towards themselves, their work, customers, environment and for other reasons that really does not help to improve their image of being a special breed, that is unreliable, sloppy, simply not to be taken seriously. But I want to show that is not necessarily the case.
I also want to talk about images, images from the outer world and those which are hidden inside, images which evoke emotions, sometimes even anger and how art making can function as a catalyst. I want to talk about new and old projects, plans how to realize an idea etc. etc.
Let’s see where this is leading to…
