Making art is like a road, one that seems to vary in length, but actually has no particular end; it gives you a sense of being boundless with your feet off the ground and your mind running wild. This journey is one of thoughts and expressions, it is open and free. I strongly believe that art is a universal language of feeling, the artist transmits an emotion which then the piece refracts to the audience. Making a piece that reflects your creativity will need initiative. The drive to push on and let others know what is going on in your head and what you want to express is truly amazing. Art is a reflection of our imaginative worlds inside our heads. Our works of art are made through the mirror of the society and culture that we are in.
Mind of a Thinker
Drawing | 30cm x 38cm
In this piece, I wanted to showcase my own personal twist on how people develop their thoughts. I believe that my drawing truly shows how intricate and complicated a single thought can be. Using contrasting shades and tones that really helps the image to pop out, I also incorporated a mixture of general pathways people take when it comes to thinking. This can be seen in the stairs that lead to nowhere, intertwined hallways conveying related concepts, infinite abysses indicating that we can pursue a thought with no final conclusion, and protruding sections express how ideas can branch from one another. Now you can imagine being one person trying to weave through this maze, some parts left forgotten. Not knowing where you are, knees weak, arms are heavy, your consciousness is left dazed and confused, desperately grasping for some semblance of order where there is none to be found.
