During the last few weeks I have been feeling very lost with my practice, and maybe in general. There seemed to be more questions than answers. I have been feeling as though everything is beyond my reach; in a haze.
What do I want to say?
How can I say it?
What is the context of my work?
Where does it fit in a professional market/context?
Am I achieving what I set out to?
Everyone keeps telling me that everything will become clear when it is ready... but what if it never does?
Today I pinned up my work to reflect on what I have been doing. I hoped to find a pattern in the chaos or to have some kind of eureka moment, but it never came. I suppose what I was really wishing for was for someone else to see my work and make some helpful remarks, but I was out of luck!
Thanks to Fiona & Polly for giving me a good impromptu 'tutorial' on the train home from Manchester. They persevered and managed to squeeze out of me the gist of my subject. I also think the suggestion to get drunk and then write about my work may pay dividends - although I am currently drinking tea and entirely sober!
Any help or comments will be gratefully received. Thank you!
