|How is an idea born? For you, what is inspiration?
An idea is not born, it is developed and nurtured over a period.Just like in ceramics where the potter takes time to design,mold and harden.
Inspiration on the other hand,is part of ones upbringing.Nobody will ever tell you where to get your inspiration.It comes naturally and genetically in some cases.
Somwtimes my paintings are a direct result from a personal experience or feeling, and sometimes I just try to create something interesting using a variety of color palletes.
Well… Often times I see something that I thought was something else, my mistake for what I thought it was can often turn into an idea for work
Inspiration to me is really anything and everything. It’s just a feeling you get when looking at whatever it is you find or think you have a connection to. On the flip side it can also be the complete opposite feeling, this to me is inspiration of what not be or do.
Idea's are born from anything, I think. Something stimulating the brain in just the right way to get that spark of interest. Inspiration for me is music, and art.
How is an idea born? I'm still trying to figure it out.
Inspiration, to me, is an idea I can't stop thinking of, it moves me, it fills me with the greatest emotions. Inspiration is an idea I can't wait to see materialized, it's an idea that, ultimately, takes me back to the studio, over and over again...until it emerges victorious, dancing on my canvas.
Ideas just happen. Any time and any place, but usually when I'm in a positive state of mind. I practice Buddhist meditation and find that making art is a sort of active meditation that refreshes and enlivens me. As with silent sitting meditation, a quiet, reasonably pleasant environment definitely helps.
Dreams and memories of the past.
Something seen or dreamt...although my work is mostly non-representational....
Sometimes music, sometimes something I have read....
to see, to dream
There really is no answer to this question. Ideas are born often & at weird times. The shape of a leaf might inspire me or the bend of a tulip. The changing seasons are definitely inspiring & most of my dolls are created with the seasons in mind. Holidays & classic fairy-tales are fun.
Actually, I try not to have a specific idea in place; it often seems too lofty a goal and can sometimes become distracting or limiting. I prefer to play with the glass and experience a "happy accident" rather than have a preconceived plan that will have me fretting over the outcome. For me, inspiration is a little spark that is ignited in the mind and fueled by passion.
An idea is born out of one's lifetime of experience. Inspiration comes from anything that moves you. For me, it is my children, the ocean, a memory, and wanting to create something that has meaning.
My inspiration comes from the Tasmanian landscape and my Christian faith. I often combine the two in compositions that are commentaries on social and environmental issues.
Inspiration may be a color, or the way light and shadows affect the subject matter. It may be the emotional presence of a subject or how it "speaks" to me emotionally.
My ideas are born from self observation, sometimes people watching, sometimes a trip to a museum, watching a movie, maybe a book, or highly emotional music.
