Confessions of madness
The Genital Garden
The Genital Garden is the name of my piece that was held at
the exhibition today. Tonight was the private view, friends,
families ect. The show runs a week and a half as far as i am
aware and if its anything like this evening then its going
to be one hell of a show.
I didn't actually get to see much of the show as i was too
busy checking on my piece to listen to comments and
considering my piece is a huge canvas with two bright pink
flowers and two giant genitals i was very suprised to hear
most people loving it! I was expecting slander and dirty
comments about how inapropriete it was but all i got was
praise. I even had some friends get so inspired with it that
they are going to name one of their songs 'Genital Garden'
so i am extremely chuffed with myself.
My two best friends came to support me and now i have a war
between about 10 people who want to have the painting once
the exhibition is over because i unfotunatly cannot keep it
in my own home due to my mother.
She also came to see it and even though i know she was going
to find it differcult to see she only made comments like
"Your walking home" and "It ain't going in my house". But
atleast i have somewhere to live.
So all in all im having a great time being an artist. I
sometimes think about if i should abandon art, get a real
job, do something worth while but then things like this,
seeing my artwork being appreciated by others just lights up
my life. I could be having the worst fucking day but someone
comments on my artwork, or i create a new piece and my body
is just lifted into a sense of bliss.
However hard i tried i doubt i will ever be able to give
that up, though i don't think i will ever want to. Ever.
