Cobalt Blue Bit 16" x 12" Acrylic on Paper
I recently came across the website of an artist whose work I admire, who describes her work as thus: "ideally my art is about abandoning self, rules, habits and ingrained concepts. My art is about allowing and trusting something inside...". Her name is Laure Heinz, and that is the mindset I strive for when I work, for me her words describe "creative purity". Another of the artists I admire is Agnes Martin, and I heard her speak about meditation and how it trained her to clear her mind when she worked. She talked about waiting for inspiration to come before starting a piece, then she was able to clear her mind and focus only on the inspiration as it came to her.
