Art Manifesto

This is a summary of what I'm trying to do with my art. It's the conclusion of my thoughts set out in my blog post Thoughts on what comes next...end of my first year

I want to create art which:

  • explores a message which is important and meaningful to me, which makes it worth putting huge time and energy into.
  • is beautiful.
  • is as perfect as I can make it. (That is, if something's not quite right, I will keep remaking it until it is. So far I've felt I need to keep moving forward and so have not been repeating paintings until I am totally happy with them.)
  • is new and different.

I wanted to set it out by itself, to keep coming back to as I work on each of the four aspects.
