Art can be Horrible

Art is often horrible, a frustrating nightmare of bad images and
unresolved ideas… and that’s only for the artist. So you sit staring at blank spaces, or half realised images, messes of paint and ink, lost.

And that’s the thing, a swirl of loss and sadness and ugly erotica, or blurs of ideas and malfunctioning hand-to-eye…..

So what do you do? force yourself to work? can you?

Keep working, that’s all, keep working, try to avoid the traps, avoid trying to follow the cliches…. move away from the idea, but not the work, be oblique, experiment, and ultimately be patient…. it will all come together soon, and the results will be worth the convolution.
