Seconde journée des JEMA 2021… aujourd’hui je vous propose un focus sur la naissance de l’idée d’une création, un processus bien souvent inattendu et ô combien réjouissant.
JEMA 2021, second day… a simple focus on the unexpected ways ideas are coming to my mind, always a joyful moment.
Where do my creations come from ?
They start with a feeling, a vision of something, a detail, a thought, a word, a sound, even a breath of air. Everything is soft, furtive, thoughts abound, intensify, run, move around. They are in the back of my head. Ready to surface whenever they are, always suddenly, always instantly.
One idea, one image leads to another even with more details and other thoughts, textures, scents or smells, a feast for the senses, effervescence takes over, and I experience a states of wonder strong enough, powerful enough to wake me up , makes me stop doing everything else in order to draw those imaginary moments, which are creative, stimulating, exciting and a little frightening by their power, their liveliness.
It’s the current of a wave that coming from far, pulling everything with it, a flowing memory and then breaking on the shore violently or peacefully but always concentrated and the creation starts here.
