The flip side to my previous blog entry titled “Thinking Art” is that making art is over thought. Sometimes it’s vital to make something without any art theory strings attached. Make something that doesn’t sway towards the art trend-of-the-moment. Make something that isn’t complicated. Sometimes I make a painting, sculpture, photograph, poem or even a bumper sticker because an idea in my head needs to get out so I can make room for more. Sometimes I make something that doesn’t seem “significant” although it forms a bridge letting me find an another direction for my work.
Making any type of art involves experimentation and the willingness to “waste time” on ideas others might consider pointless.
