Creating in a new way - Abyss

September 21, 2018  •  2 Comments

"Abyss", September 2018

 

When I get stuck and I’m not feeling creative one of the things I do is look back on work I made in the past. I look for images that excite me and ones I really enjoyed creating. Doing this has led me in a new direction that I am really excited about. 

All the images that jumped out to me had one thing in common. I created the space. 

The very first image I created when I began this journey involved me creating a space out of a box and then editing myself into it. I’ve come a long way since I created that image, but the love for creating something with my hands hasn’t faded. 

Creating in a new way can be scary and I know I have a lot to learn, but I loved every moment of creating this image!

 

You can see how I created this space below.

Your work here is so relevant - to me, to the world at large. Awareness is the only reasonable outcome to hope for. Anxiety, to me, is an invisible curse - no cure (so far) just adaptation and work-arounds. Distractions that put perception askew, away from laser-focused anxiety are like drugs. Some work temporarily, others don't work at all.
I want to THANK YOU for posting this publicly. I admire and applaud your courage, Lauren. I explore my own anxiety through different mediums, including writing and visual art. It's a life-long things - sometimes morphing, but always as intense as it is elusive. I wish you the very best in all your endeavors.
