I have been pretty busy doing collages as I travel here in Taiwan, mostly in my sketch books, where I draw, paint, cut and glue, inspired by the world and people I’m discovering and the creative process itself.
If you would like to support my work, please take a look at my online print shop and see if there is anything that tickles your fancy, I have chosen to add my images to Redbubble to sell, as I feel it is reasonably priced, and they ship worldwide, if you have seen another artwork of mine not yet on my shop, which you would like to buy there, please get in-touch, I will do my best to upload it and make it available asap, and if you have other ideas please share. Thanks, Sam.
Today I have 3 new works to share, experimental and abstract, I am relating these to my thoughts about life, which is influenced by life in SE Asia and an interest in thought processes, and self improvement, perhaps you will see something totally different, I hope so.
Eyes, unblinking and watching, a formidable sea beast, lifting and shaking the water from it’s head, setting out to challenge the day ahead. Perhaps we each see something of ourselves, a mirror on our experience and position of mind in the moment. Preconceptions red and yellow, active, warm and new, half complete circles for eyes, empty and opening on a new day, shaking off past uselessness’s, opening to opportunity and growth, we are what we are and so much more if we allow it.
Deep in the ocean a battle wages, red and yellow, a shell to protect, from the quick attacks of red creatures that need to feed, the ocean, calm, blue, green, providing a flow to mix and keep things moving along, helping those dancing, with life and death. Perhaps we can protect ourselves from the unnecessary and just deal with the things we can progress with, allow ourselves to settle into the calm all around us, observant and ready for action.
“Crests and Troughs”
The ocean, forms flexing and morphing, effortless, continually flowing, a pattern of differences, all waves are different but also similar, calm and stormy, but never considering the what ifs and buts of it all, can a lesson be learned from our most precious resource?
I hope you enjoyed my pictures and words, at the moment I am trying to improve my art writing, so I hope this will come through in these updates, with more interesting descriptions, feedback is always appreciated.
Thanks for reading
P.S I have just uploaded a video about interactive art, featuring the LamDinao (Makey Makey outside Vietnam) and a Interactive Art Lesson
