One of my favorite things to do is pick the brains of talented people I admire.. I was doing quite a bit of that this year, and every time there was an exchange of creative ideas, I’d leave feeling crazy inspired, especially when visiting their homes or studios. I’ve always been fascinated with the way people live. What things they decide to buy, how they take care of themselves. How they get motivated. Their behaviors, their habits, their everyday rituals. More specifically, I became obsessed with the daily lives of other creative huemans (and I say that in the most non-creepy way possible!). Every artist has their own way of approaching the creative process. I wanted to hear their stories. How and why did they get into the arts? What do they need to do to get into creative mode? What tools do they use, and why?
I noticed in the last year my own creative habits were changing. I was painting bigger, and more often. Felt more confident in my ‘freestyle’ style. One of the big goals that I’ve had for a long time was to produce a huge immersive-art installation where I could transform an entire space. So I decided that for one month, I was going to study friends in different creative fields (music, visual arts, performing arts), and observe the way they work and/or live, observe their rituals. Then, after that one month, I would engage in my own ritual: paint at Think Tank Gallery (home to my art studio), and transform the whole space into one big mural installation…all while painting off the top of my head. Some of the people that I visited during my Ritual ‘research’ phase made their way onto the walls. Brandon Munoz, aka Monkwood, built an incredible wooden pyramid slide, his own interpretation of my theme of Ritual.
