By keeping your mind open to all influences you free yourself enabling ideas to start. Opening your mind to ‘the flow’ gives work freedom to grow. You start with a simple idea or notion. It could have come from seeing a curtain moving slowly in the breeze, the idea forms, the marks are made and work has begun. Thoughts start to find order and take on a life of their own, what was intangible develops and starts to take form. You experiment with colours and ways of making marks. Repeat actions whilst still finding new ways of moving the work forward, always staying open to new thoughts and ideas so the work is in constant flux. Development and progression through staying open to new influences, thoughts and ideas. This means the work remains fresh and fluid, allowing you to move forward without blocks formed by conscious doubt. Question after the fact, once you have moved.
