This work is focusing on the proces of making art
and the dialogs the mind has whilst working.
Within the stillness of the creating,
the mind is continually in dialog with oneself
or imaginary situations, or shopping lists or anything
really. However, not all thoughts are helpful for
the making process or for me when making.
The quest is not to dwell too long on questions
or thoughts that hinder this process and takes
away the focus of the labour itself.
It is a matter of taking every thought captive,
weigh them, and just use the ones that are beneficial.
