My work deals with "random" scribblings with mainly ink, thread, paint and charcoal. I regard my media as less important than the methods of creation, and the methods less than the meanings.
My favorite creation method is quite simple:
1. Release raw, "random" energy.
2. Critically assess it until a meaning of significance surfaces.
3. Repeat steps 1 and 2 until satisfied.
Scribbling forces many "mistakes", of which I will eventually have to decide whether to "fix" or not. By creating in this way, it clearly shows what shapes and forms I favor over others when I step away and critically assess the piece at hand. My "preference" in the assessment process is not always what the work relies on, but rather a collaboration (and sometimes a battle) between what I want and what the piece wants.
Although I am usually not intending to create images, they do appear. When they appear it is always fun to see what kind of meaning they will carry/or not carry.
The usage of found materials forces me to adapt to unpredictable circumstances and keeps me from exercising my preferences too much. A work is successful when my preferences are willingly and joyfully congruent with the direction the piece itself is wanting to go.
