網圖分享:頭疊頭+臉中臉 恐怖暗黑系畫作

by

唔知點解好鍾意睇插畫師Miles Johnston呢類暗黑畫作,頭疊頭、臉中臉、絕望表情配木無表情、扭曲肢體加掏空身軀,唔使下下紅彤彤噴晒血、標晒腸、爆晒頭,已經畀到一種好恐怖嘅感覺。睇睇吓,我腦海不期然啟動埋幻想程式,將我好憎厭嘅八婆上司,套喺呢批畫作之內……

Another scan from #inktober2018 Always so much more in a drawing than I can put into words. Thanks for looking

Sometimes it is hard and complicated to explain where a drawing comes from, and there is always a fear that in trying to do so, you will impose on the audiences ability to form their own meaning and connection. In another sense, I am also sceptical that I actually posses the ability to accurately do so, my working method is very intuitive and driven largely by feeling, so coming up with a clear meaning is often a rationalization in hindsight. That said, it is fun to talk about art, and I have some thoughts about this piece. I liked the idea of simple binary pattern repeating into infinity. The opposite direction of the lightsources represents a kind of polarity, two opposing positions or states flipping backwards and forwards indefinitely. at the boundaries between light and dark the edges are lost and form a kind of unity, the whole picture is without clear boundaries. The background is a field of waves meeting in the middle horizontally and pulling apart down the centre vertically. I feel like this set up could represent a wide variety of interpretations, in many ways I am more inspired by music that visual art. Music is irreducible verbally in my view and has to be experienced directly to be understood. You can analyse and talk about music in many interesting ways but if you don’t feel it you’ve missed the point. I’d love to hear what you think of this piece, what does it say to you, if anything? Does visual art make you feel something?

Unfortunately I am going to have to post this censored, Apparently Instagram have updated their nipple detection algorithms and it is being enforced pretty strictly. I hope that is the case and not repetitive reporting. Either way to view uncensored head to my website, linked in bio. I find the way this looks more offensive, but right now that seems to be the way it is and I don’t want to focus on it. “Peace is Possible”, graphite on Stonehenge Paper, 2018 When I made this image I was trying to visualize the way I needed to feel. I recently learned about the archetype of the ‘wounded healer’. The way that people sometimes develop their ability to help with a specific problem through attempting to heal it in themselves. I feel like artists often embody this concept too. We pour so much into our work to try and find the love, connection, excitement, energy and meaning that we need to feel. I know that I have always been someone deeply prone to scary and difficult existential angst, alongside a love for life and humanity that I find hard to put into words. All of the work I make is my own attempt to soothe myself and find meaning. When I hear from people on here that it does the same for them, that is deeply life-affirming, thank you.

Excited to share this. My Patreon page is now live, linked in bio 🦀🔗🦀. The rewards are Bi-Weekly Art Livestreams and access to a private discord server. I spent today getting a nice HD webcam set up and figuring out how to stream so everything will run smoothly. The first stream will be tomorrow afternoon, 3pm CET. link is in my bio if you would like to read more. The number one question I receive on here is “where do you get your inspiration”. With the patreon I wanted to figure out the best way to try and answer this question in an ongoing way, by hosting art livestreams twice a week. I will work on current projects and answer questions from the chat, as well as just generally talking about things that have been getting me creatively fired up recently. The goal is for the price of a cup of coffee per month to provide something that will help keep you motivated to make art! If you’re like me you probably have a lot of time to listen to stuff while you draw, and I have always found great motivation from podcasts and audio content. This is my attempt to try and provide the same to all of you, and to offer a really cheap and direct way to help me to keep making my art. Let me know if you have any questions I can answer below, peace
