I have a sense of humour, I think I do, anyway, maybe that is funny in itself. Poking fun at myself or even my artwork is part of good mental health maintenance for me and when I talk about my work to others, I am not adverse to exploring what they see. It becomes a very fun exercise.
When I talk to others, I can pretty much tell if they are more interested in realism or could be more inclined to the abstract. I think it has to do with their way of thinking, categorizing, and/or organizing information. I think the more logical one is, the more he or she is inclined to realism… but on the other hand, maybe the more logical and the more left brained, the more the right can become engaged because it really isn’t used… hmmm. That doesn’t sound right, but perhaps when exposed to the abstract, it wakes up and is intrigued…..
Too good not to share…
A day or so ago, I shared some of my latest abstracted charcoal drawings from Ballet Kelowna with my physiotherapist and his office manager. Now M, the physiotherapist, is very science minded and logical, and when he said he saw monsters wearing glasses (above) and polar bears (below) in them, I was very pleasantly surprised, as I didn’t think he had any imagination at all! (just kidding M). He did ask me (in a fun way) if I was on drugs when I drew them – could be!! There is an entry in to an alternate world when I draw, time ceases and the in-between appears – apparently that is similar to drug induced euphoria. lol.
Thank you for looking and exploring M & M… it really is always a pleasure!
