the principles I follow as an artist
As a contemporary Sydney artist, this short manifesto is meant to summarize some of my beliefs
about creativity in the visual arts. These are principles I follow
generally and the points I listed are not meant to be a formula or recipe for
creating masterpieces. They are just reminders for myself
so as to avoid the usual pitfalls artists encounter.
Having found these principles useful in my career as a
professional artist for
over thirty years, I
decided to share them with other interested artists and students.
I believe this list is open for
debate and I invite all and sundry to discuss the issues raised.
Ultimately my philosophy is for my own use and it may be meaningless for anybody else.
So, here are my guidelines I follow:
Capture the essentials and ignore the
Try to capture the essential elements of a visual experience. Ignore the
superfluous bits and eliminate unnecessary details. Focus on the critical
aspects of the subject and capture only the significant and lasting
Never compete with the camera
Reproducing accurately what the eye sees is not necessarily artistic creativity.
Technical proficiency may only produce an impressive illustration. A
musical composer does not merely reproduce the sounds heard in nature, but
creates a composition from his heart.
Be interested in
only creating images which reflect your subjective response to places, or express
your feelings and capture the mood of being there.
Abstract art is
treated like music
Good abstract painters use the same basic principles as composers of music --
balanced composition, integrity, mood, tone, colour, texture, rhythm, harmony, contrast,
balance, tension, counterpoint and so on. The objective is the same: creating a
mood, arousing a feeling, stirring the emotions.
Venture beyond the comfort zone
Do not be content to settle into a commercially successful and 'easy' style.
Refuse to limit your output to 'much of the same'
thus avoiding the use of a tired old formula. Chose to move
safe comfort zone. Search for variety,
revel in the excitement of
discovering something new and unfamiliar; and also learn to experiment with future possibilities.
Express the joy for living
Let colour help express the thrill of being alive. Access your sacred gift
of intuition and honour your creative spirit. Then you will have a wonderful
opportunity to create meaningful and optimistic images to make people
For me as an artist the real achievement is when
people tell me that my artworks speak to them, when my creations touch their hearts and
spirit. When my paintings wash away the sweat and dust of their stressful
working days, I am happy.
The essential ingredient
As my abstract artist friend Ted Knerr reminded
me, there is another crucial element to creativity. This is not something
you can just conjure up from your head. To paraphrase him: real art comes from
inspiration, and valid art-appreciation comes first from a gut reaction which
in turn comes from one's spiritual condition.
Great art can come from the
uneducated but quietly enlightened, and bad art from the highly trained but
disconnected from the soul; so education can be a plus or a minus, but soul
connection is an indispensable prerequisite for an artist's creativity.
