Poetic and Artistic Moods
I divide my creative mindset, or moods of operation while making images, into these five, ordered alphabetically:
- Emotional: senses, sensations, perception, emotions, feelings, conscious awareness.
- Environmental: ecosystems, wild life, society vs nature.
- Erotic: sexuality, sex-appeal, flirting, arousal, orgasm, loving intimacy.
- Intellectual: meditation, balance, complexity, composition.
- Spontaneous: movement, gesture, reaction, brushstroke, will, curiosity, challenge, ideas.
The collections of my hand-made artwork are based on these moods, which somewhat define their stile combinations.
