Sorry you feel uncomfortable

There are times when I have so many ideas, so much work and not enough confidence. I’m trying. As you all have been questioning- the reclusive bubble is still there; always there. The only way I can pop it (I’ve realised) is to do ‘things’. Therefore, I’m doing a lot of things. I stepped out of my comfort zone and decided to be a part of a collective for Rivington Place (The gallery that I’m so passionate about). This has proved to be one of the most enriching, challenging and educational experiences yet. Though I’m still in the middle of my paintings I wanted to share the exhibition on Friday 22nd August 2014. The collective is called SORRYYOUFEELUNCOMFORTABLE. Though I wasn’t there for the name choice, it speaks to me and my works on an array of levels. It fits, as most of the time I am the one who feels uncomfortable.

As for writing- I have been to exhibitions, experienced it, felt it but just haven’t typed it. Sometimes I feel like thats exactly what should happen. However, saying that I have many more ‘things’ to share with you all.

I’m trying.

“All art is a kind of confession, more or less oblique. All artists, if they are to survive, are forced, at last, to tell the whole story; to vomit the anguish up.” -James Baldwin
