Abstract:
What drives creation in art? What differs in this between artists, and more specifically? What comes from letting that creativity flow out, unhampered yet guided? What are the influences that inspiration plays in creation? These questions are what I want to explore for myself visually, creating compositions that are continually inventive. I explored these questions through a process driven by as pure an inspiration as I could obtain using the medium that is the most natural - and thus the smallest impediment to my thought process - and adding cohesiveness at the end to create a full, technical, interesting, and thought provoking composition. I think in ink, so to speak, and I used this quality to help me just draw; each piece evolved from one stroke to the next, growing and building with the simple joy of drawing guided by subconscious and experiential cues. As the drawings neared their completion, much more consideration was taken in order to form the complete gestalts. In the end, 3 completely unique character interactions took form, whose detail and oddity allow the viewer to explore the depths of my mind and make inferences of their own creation upon them.
