Selection of 'Quilt Squares' © Cherry Jeffs 2013
The amassing of squares for my paper 'quilt' is proving a wonderful opportunity for an exploration of process.
I meander along a particular creative path and see where it leads me. When I feel I have gone into a cul-de-sac, I back out and start on a new path. (You'll be able to identify a few of these paths in the selection shown.)
Staying the Course
However, after reading this inspiring interview with artist, Anna Schuleit about her process on Gwarlingo, I began to question whether it might not be beneficial to try staying with the path a bit longer. Perhaps - rather than a cul-de-sac - all I have reached is a rather narrow pass.
So what about you?
Can YOU "stay with the work even if it doesn't feel great, or seem satisfying, directional or conclusive"?
