During the creative process of my newest piece, I was motivated by the concept of " Emerging" and the important role it plays in the career of an Artist.
Emerge-(Verb) - Move out of or away from something and come into view
-Recover from or survive a difficult or demanding situation (google dictionary)
As artisans, it's important for us to exercise this concept in many levels. I like to view art making , as a tool for language , which funnels our creative inspiration into expression, this in itself is an act of "emergence".
Over the past few weeks I came up with an abstract painting "Emerging from Within" .
I wanted to use color and design elements that portrayed a lady, with some of her details kind of obscure, and had to be pulled out of the abstract shapes. This would look like she is emerging from within the piece herself. I think this is something everyone experience rather an artist or not, there is a point in your life where you will emerge from within on the path to being your true self.
Want to share your "emerging" story with us, we love to hear, how you are "emerging from within" as an artisan, ( your challenges, how your combat them,etc.)
