Ideas and Images Part 1


Ideas upon images upon ideas

So how do we start? How do we say everything?

By starting small- with a single image or idea. Fine, but what are they and where do those come from?

IMAGES are pictures, moments frozen in time that seem to suggest other images, ideas and worlds. They provoke the mind to imagine further and they tend to be more subconscious than ideas.

IDEAS are descriptions of actions and other thought-out details. They tend to be more conscious than images. We can come up with them in words. Words are often our best tool for articulating them simply, but not always for manifesting them.

If you want to create art, create stories and characters and drawings, then let’s start with a single image or idea. Anything will do, so long as it has even the slightest real resonance when we pause to reflect upon it. Everything need not be organized and brilliant in the beginning. If you have all the answers in advance, I’d recommend doing something else with them, like teaching. This is about art that will fufill, suprise and engage us during its creation.

So, we START WITH AN IMAGE, mingling other images and ideas with it.

Or we start with an idea , WORKING TOWARDS IMAGES AND OTHER IDEAS.
