Which is great. Thing is, I really don't know what I am doing from day to day and remember I really don't have extensive knowledge on any one topic. It is reflections of my life around me...which has been too much T.V. at the moment, which keeps me company while I am cleaning. My process just starts with moving materials around, paints and inks, which sorts out my thoughts. What I am doing right now instead of artwork is cleaning out window tracks before we move out. Now there is quite a few hours I will never get back. To get a cleaner in is very expensive, but they earn every dollar they get and then some. My Nana was a cleaner in a public school and I don't know that she was thanked enough? She never complained. Please remember that the images I make are also questions. Some are images of how I see myself but others are images of how the world might see me and how I feel I am supposed to present myself to the world to gain acceptance or appreciation or I am not sure what. I get lots of on what I should be doing artistically or practically in the world because art does not pay much. I don't know personally too many artists who do it for the money. We go in knowing this. I guess this keeps coming up for me because there are people who make subtle suggestions that they don't see the value in what I do. Maybe I am misinterpreting subtle now but either way I am going to keep doing it. Superiority at play all around us. This is a cycle too. When people tell a superiority story they have either just done it themselves or have been the butt end of it. I don't think anyone is exempt from exerting it or taking it, in a first world country in average suburban land anyway. Probably does not play out like this in other parts of the world. Cleaning makes my thoughts a bit random hey??? Even the use of Wikipedia to do the essay I posted a while back was an intentional one - it could well contain dubious information but it is mostly good isn't it...it becomes a superiority point of conversation too. I would not get away with it in other study disciplines and probably wouldn't further into the written theory of art either.
