A productive artist produces lots of work to create gems from the rubbish. The trick is to build on those strong works. I consider my strongest works to be “Depression“, “Renewal“, “Making War Unthinkable“, and “Soldier salutes Death“. I also feel that my textile art is strong. None of them feature the faceless crowd motif I’ve been doing so much of. My continuing with the motif is artistically lazy. Expect changes and watch this space.
The art at the top of the post is page 6 of my sketchbook project book. I’ve labelled it “Reflection” because it’s a reflection through the centre line. It’s featured in this post because it doesn’t have the crowd motif and because none of the works built on this realisation from the past few days have been started yet.
