Creating a World

Friday, August 15th, 2014

“Oh yes, I like to create a world,” I remember telling someone when I was at art school who happened to walk into my studio and comment on the smattering of drawings and doodles taped to my wall, as if this was something I did all the time. In truth, it was the first time I had made sketches of the same subject, experimenting with different mediums and colors, and then displaying them on the wall. I’m pretty sure I had invented the idea of calling it a “world” on the spot to capture what I had done. I remember that it was helpful and inspiring to immerse myself in the visual language that I had started to develop. I thought of that today when I put up some doodles on my wall that felt fresh and exciting. I’m going to surround myself with them and see what shows up next as I practice art.
