This is where it all began, for the Edinburgh chapter of my artistic life, that is. I was a fiend of a machine, churning out originals of somethings similar to the thing above. This was, maybe, four years ago. After nearly a year of feeling like a factory and failing at earning in my factory work life, I decided to see if the originals would translate into giclee prints. And thank Zues (Aphrodite, God, St Peter, etc) they did as my work started to actually earn me a living. Sorta. Still at the ‘sorta’ stage but improving as I go. Hopefully. I live in hope.
And so. The print above has lived a full life and now it has reached its edition limit. It now has hundreds of brothers and sisters circulating about. Living in the UK, Japan, the States and many places inbetween.
As much as I love doing these pieces, I have other ideas to present that aren’t so illustrative. And this brings me around to a conversation I recently had with a fellow creative. Where do we go from here?! Both of our practices need a push and in our individual way, we are trying to figure out how to step out of a rut. A good rut, but change is needed.
And the catalyst will be…..?
