How To See The World

As an artist, the things you see are filtered in ways that other people might find strange, and you often have a brain full of ideas in various stages of incubation. Originally created as a response on Pop My Mind.

From A Stone

 

A response on Pop My Mind to the Let’s Talk theme around mental health and it’s connections to art.

Most of the stresses and anxieties I have can be linked back to my hands. Being prone to RSI causes a lot of pain that feeds into fears of not being able to make work, or of never being able to make enough.  And it’s easy to feel betrayed by your own hands – why won’t they make better work? why can’t they work faster? why aren’t they good enough?

So you push yourself all the time, and if you don’t take a step back to breathe now and again, getting anything else creative out of yourself is like getting blood from a stone.

Lyrically Induced Agony
