We have a strong appreciation and love for various mediums of art. Apart from music, visual is a creative expression with which we resonate the most. Like all forms of art, there are many ways in which to create and develop an idea. It ranges from stream of consciousness execution to constructed and planned detail before a work is even started. It is fascinating to explore and analyze all the different and infinite pathways to creation and art. An interesting of these approaches, (which initially almost seems counter intuitive), is through mathematical formulae.
How much does environment affect creativity? How much does any context affect the production of creative ideas and ease of their creation? I think almost all of us can relate to environment in the context of shifting the state of mind to prepare for use in a certain way. Either to alter mood for creativity, or heighten focus for productivity in some way. How much does that make a difference in results? Is it ubiquitous, or does it work differently depending on the individual and their ability to project and focus?
I've before mentioned our penchant and passion for the beauty and power lying in the depths of expression behind dark art. To some this medium of macabre serves to suit only superficial shock, but to those that can connect and possess the vision to look deep within the inspiration behind such pieces, the boldness and beauty of dark exploration reveals its power and intellect. The Conjoined series of art shows (curated by the talented Chet Zar) being one of the more complete and talented collectives of such found within Los Angeles, I was greatly excited to attend and discover what was in store.
