Art and Emotion

I think most artists would agree that their best work usually comes at times of heightened emotion, i know mine certainly does. There are times when i can't get the paint or ink on the canvas quick enough to release whatever emotion assails me. Sometimes the images are happy and celebrate a feeling of freedom, recently the images have come from a darker, retrospective place.

When i was in Bournemouth recently i came across a wall of tiles to commemorate the lives of people lost to Aids in Dorset. I thought some of the paintings represented on the tiles were incredibly powerful and beautiful

Whatever the reason or motivation that causes someone to produce a piece of work, art to me is as necessary as breathing.

Wow those tiles are a neat project. I know exactly what you mean about art being a conduit for emotions.
