charged with energy
In this piece I am using a combination of two opposites, the seductive and the repulsive, to create something new. It's not a story cloth really.
There is no meaning other than an artwork charged with energy.
I'm faster than me.
An affront to what is expected, but like a storm we want to watch, it gives a bit of a thrill.
We want to touch it to see if it's true.
It's not that I lose control, but things happen that although interesting are not my original idea.
I am always working from both sides.
beautiful - ugly
control - lack of control
shape - line
order - chaos
front - back
fast - slow
Working with opposites is what drives me to continue with the making over a period of months.
Untidiness is the subject. That's interesting.
The smoother side is a bit too charming, but it is the result of that raw inner making.
