I don’t know why, but after weeks of prevarication and confusion I woke up this morning and knew exactly what I needed to do!
I’ve been fiddling around making work that is either too big to be called a sample or too small. I’ve tried things out that have had nothing to do with my core ideas in a desperate attempt to get to the ‘thing’ that annoyingly stayed just out of reach. Nothing has quite worked, although some things have had promise. Obviously it has all been worthwhile and has contributed to this eureka moment. Strangely, I think deep down I already knew what had to be done – it was there in my brain all along, but for some reason at 6 o’clock this morning everything fell into place.
Today I’ve painted 2.5 metres of linen cloth and made 120 wire eyelets. All that remains is to put them together ….
…. of course it may all go horribly wrong!
