Emergence, 10"x12", inks, 2015AD. £150

Emerging Artist - it's a funny term isn't it? As if us artists are like butterflies just waiting to break out of our chrysalis', spread our wings and gorge on the sweet nectar of life. I suppose any metaphor becomes ludicrous if scrutinised closely enough. Have I emerged? Am I still emerging? I really have no way of telling. During the time of my degree show, I think I tried to emerge a little too quickly...like a diver surfacing too rapidly and being struck with the bends. Ooh, that was a good metaphor. Take it from this diver...um...I mean artist - Take your time, and enjoy your journey. The destination is but a trifling matter.
