Do you have someone to help you grow in life?

____

In contrast to the last few images I used an intuitive process to create this one. I wanted to do something with this plant after seeing it every day sitting in our flat and finding new details every time. I had a rough idea of it to act as the head of a human figure and a black background, but nothing else. No concept, no details. The idea kept nagging at me and eventually I got around to shooting it. I started the edit, but soon realised the rough image I had didn’t translate well into an aesthetically interesting and well developed image with a story to tell. Not surprisingly, the details were missing.

So I kept revisiting it and trying different things until eventually it felt ‚right‘. And during that process a concept developed that maybe was there all along, waiting for me to work it out and it took the time I spent with the image to develop and grow and for me to make sense of the parts that I had. Maybe. Or maybe I just got lucky to find a concept that worked. I’m never really sure how much is going on subconsciously, how much is genuinely developed through a constant back and forth between the artist and their work and how much is fabricated to make it tell a „good story“ for it to sell because noone has the time to sit with an image and find the story within themselves. For the image to just be.

Long story short, I’ve realised that I enjoy the process (and the outcome) much more, when I do the needed work beforehand. Conceptualising, visualising, thinking out the details and what I need to do to achieve the image I want to create and to convey the message I’ve been thinking about. It’s harder to start creating like this, but so much easier to get to the creation waiting at the end.

What kind of process works for you when you create art? And why?
