BRIAN ELSTON said… “Art is when you quit thinking about what you are creating and your ‘self’ leaves the room leaving your mind to unconsciously to create.”
I added my work to the MyArtSpace.com site about a month ago. While enjoying the artist quotes on the blog I came across the above comment quote by Brian Elston. It struck me that this is very much how I would describe my working methods. I am often asked do I have a plan? An idea that I start with? My answer often is in a nutshell, Starting a piece I add as much as I can to the surface, layers of collage, color, build, add, subtract, scratch, draw, erase, and then step back, and reduce. Reduce, remove and balance all that chaotic information into an acceptable order. It is an intuitive method that is sometimes difficult for me to put into words – Brian decribes it perfectly – the ‘self’ leaves the room allowing the mind to create. Thank you Brian!
