Art is a constant pain, a struggle that persists, and yet a vital organ that if removed, would be the death of me.
What Inspires Me to Create Art?
My artmaking is more of a need than a want. I draw and paint and create things to capture elements of meaning that I can grasp, to build an imagine of of who I am and the difference between reality and fantasy. There have been times that mixing that up has almost been fatal, and I'm trying my best everyday, to remind myself that I am still here, I have a purpose and a reason to be alive, and that reason is my art.
The first 26 years of my life have been partially remembered and partially imagined due to the highs and lows of my previously undiagnosed bipolar episodes.Through my art I access a level of clarity that I cannot engage with anywhere else. It also helps to think that maybe one day the art I create will reach others who too see the world like I do and inspire them to keep holding on to life, despite how unforgiving it can be at times.
