Entering a mustard period.
Yesterday I was talking about tools (see previous post). And how repurposing them in inventive ways can be exactly what cuts it. And then it reminded me how much I used to enjoy this game in which you have to come up with original uses for a given object.
And then it got me thinking how Art is all about that.
People tend to believe that every time an artist creates an artwork, something new is created.
Art mimics Evolution.
Good Art is always repurposing, reinventing, revisiting, turning the established rules upside down. And then again. Until you’ve turned a concept around so much that it’s no longer recognizable.
And so it becomes unprecedented. And that’s what makes it interesting.
See, Art is revolutionary, and so is any creative movement.
So how are you revolving your own concepts and perspectives?
For me I like to try new things all the time. Inside and outside the studio. But it’s not like I sit there and try to dry my brain out until I come up with something new.
The freshness of the process comes from letting one thing lead me to the next until I find a point of exhilaration.
Then I stay there for a while, until the creative process “asks me” to start all over again and move on to the next thing.
And yes, I always go back to the basics, and I revisit old stuff all the time, because I know no other way to create something meaningful and long-lasting…
