⚠️WORK IN PROGRESS⚠️
It’s still bear season.
I have a firm belief in comfort zones
and I like to operate outside them.
I think comfort zones are dangerous places for artists to work in.
When you get complacent in a certain style or your studio, that’s when interesting things stop happening.
The creative pursuit is a bit like bears. If you want to hunt little bears, you can stay in the familiar: in the forest, on the ice caps, in the alpine. But if you want to catch the big bears, you’ve got to be willing to get scared. Try looking in the sea, but go deeper. Get out of the shallows. Feel the fear of drowning in the deep end. Those bears? The ones far from the safety of the shoreline? Those are more powerful.They’re huge and abstract. And they are beautiful in their own way.
Go hunt the big bears.
