If there’s one thing that keeps my creative imagination alight, its progressing a few pieces in parallel.
Sometimes a piece has to sit and dry, or sometimes it needs just simply to sit.
It might be in (one of) the ugly phases, uncooperative, or just tired and needing a rest.
Ideas need to incubate, assimilate, to marinate in wet paint or to settle amid the layers of thought processes and ideas.
Among these layers of color and pattern are layers of construction and deconstruction.
Themes emerge and submerge, continually spiralling around, cross pollinating each other as they go.
Time finds their place, turning in turns they cycle into their next phase.
(I often feel like I’m on the outside looking in while this happens)
These images are snapshots of the paintings I’m making for the 100 day project. You can see them develop day by day in little time-lapse snippets over in Instagram #100LayersByMixy
These little videos, in turn, are combining into longer video stories.
