i am starting to get out of my touch.
it has been two weeks now since i've started attempting to finish a sketch or plate. but the attempt just left me with piles of crumpled papers and torn canvas inside my room. the reason?
a couple of weeks back, me and my friends were strolling along sm north edsa and came across an art gallery. i immediately pointed out a piece that i really liked. it was a surreal one done with acrylic paint in canvas. it was a distorted figure of a man alone in a dark. it was painted with a piercing cool mixture of blue, green, violet, and black. then accented with maroon. the contradiction of the latter color highlighted a unique mood about the painting.
the feeling was like, imagining yourself waking up alone and sweating in your dark and hot room at the moment were the sun is about set and it so red.
then, a friend, who i know has a good talent when it comes to visuals, told me that he didn't like it. simply because it seemed like it so common for artists nowadays, to draw in a such genre. his opinion made me thought of switching to a different form and i also realized that it is about time that i explore a new style.
now, probably i am still in the conceptualization part and really couldn't think of anything to blog about, even my weekly top ten.
well, hopefully, soon i'll be able to find what i am really looking for (subtext/context).
