I am pondering a change in inspiration of late. Things started to change with Little Shiva, I think. I was very aware of favouring the object over any potential romantic activity, for his sake as much, if not more than mine. In any case, I think the form it is taking indicates that Little Shiva is a representation of helpless chemistry. It is a particularly raunchy piece I suspect, but it is also devotional. I liked him a lot.
Haram Bawbag sort of started by accident, as Bawbag needed to move on from his ex, and I thought I was providing a means by which he could shift a little from a very self destructive course of action. I shouldn’t have bothered. It wasn’t my responsibility and he didn’t really understand friendship anyway, but it has raised a lot of interesting issues in terms of a thought process. It is going to be a nice representation of his state of mind anyway, and the work done so far was storytelling in nature, which is a new development.
Both of these pieces are a bit more advanced in terms of the complexity of thought than previously. It used to be that I would wait until no relationship was possible, and then turn lemons into lemonade by creating something without thinking about it at all. Twisty would tell you that he has witnessed me working until my hands bleed, such is the motivational angst behind it.
I did not get very far with the Boris collection, mainly due to money, but also because the work queue was interrupted by Twisty’s fear of the project and illness. I have a few pieces to finish when the urge strikes, but I really need to write up a few things before I make them. I would also like to gift him one of the items, but I don’t think it can be arranged at the moment and after he gets PM it will be too late.
The new piece, Two Grapes is a complete departure from the norm, as it is a riposte and given half a chance, it is likely to be a beginning rather than an end. I am very uptight about it so far, although gathering the materials has been fun. I am looking forward to seeing how it works as a commercial image. As the interiors of coffee dude’s places are fabulous, I am shooting for outdoors, so I have selected a resin which will, like a photograph, become sepia with time, which I am hoping he will like. It is very slow due to work issues and my hyper -carefulness.
When I am at work, I work on Little Shiva in the car, which has attracted a lot of attention as it is a pretty flash piece of embroidery sculpture so far. The wild abandon with which I work on it is remarkable in comparison with the oodles of thought going into Two Grapes. I wonder what this indicates? Is it a respect issue perhaps? I will figure it out.
Anyway that is my pondering for the night as I am very tired and have another very long day tomorrow.
Oh and for the person looking up politics, no I am not a Tory LOL
