I have been feeling kind of blah this semester. I like my work, I like photography, but for whatever reason I have just not been feeling it. 
What I have been feeling is illustration. I have dabbled and worked with illustration sense high school, but as I told Tracey recently, it is something I have never had critiqued or have ever tried to go to the next level with. 

I am very self conscious about it… Not as illustration, but as art. As something that could be part of my graduate program, as something people will see as worth while. 

I have an idea for a story. It involves my daughter waking up small and going on an adventure around the house. I would take pictures of her and the house and put her into them. Much in the style of my current photo montage pieces. I am also thinking about this space graphic novel about a girl astronaut. And there are 1 million things my internal critic is saying about this. Tracey asked me a question that I am using to help. She asked if I would regret not doing this stuff (illustration, book making, kids books) and my answer is yes. 

I will regret not making this story featuring Charlotte while she is still young enough to model for it. I will regret not doing what I enjoy and what I have ideas for. I will regret not at least seeing this through. 

But I am terrified of this risk. So that probably means it is what I need to do. The funniest part of this, is I almost applied to the program with a children’s book I had illustrated, but I was dissuaded and instead used the photos. It is strange how things come around, connect and fall together. I have been feeling kind of blah this semester. I like my work, I like photography, but for whatever reason I have just not been feeling it.

Oh. right.

I just realized something. I keep saying my work is about memory. Really, I think my work is about forgetting and trying to not forget.

"Fishing Trip" by Liz Randall

Ageing and childhood remembered and forgotten are things that I am really thinking about right now in my work. For the first time I am including me in my work. I am the little girl in the piece, however, the story I feel is not isolated to me alone. The stillness broken by the simple sway of the toy fish and the tapping of a foot is the point of focus within the piece. Memories fade and shift and change over time but there are distinct moments that ring again and again in ones memory. The detail of other parts of the moment are shrouded and confused, but the “important”details are remembered and replayed until they eventually fade with the mind.

Don’t get in the way of your self

Recently I listened to a TED radio hour about creativity, and the thing that all the various artists/scientists said was don’t let your brain get in the way of your art. One of the talks was about Jazz musicians who improvise and when they were observed on a CAT scan when they were improvising the pre-frontal cortex activity when down Meaning that they were not self censoring. 

My menor realized pretty quickly that I over think (most people who talk to me about my art realize this) So part of what i am working on is not self censoring, not thinking before doing, just creating. Even so I struggle. 

I do not self sensor when creating a pottery mug, or cartooning, or painting for students, or when in the act of picture taking. I do however self sensor when creating “art.” I think perhaps, if there is one thing art school has taught me it is that I do not create very well when I am forced to justify why I create. It is hard to separate the thinking from the doing. 

Here is the link to the Jazz Brain guy…
