I run into people, every now and again, that want to see my workshop, just to get the feeling of what goes through my mind while I paint.
I always tell them that it is a bit of a mess, and they are kind of surprised. Yet, disorder is helpful when trying to think and act creatively. The same way that creativity involves putting together ideas and concepts in a new fashion, the mere messiness of an artist’s lair helps in that process. One can fin connections that in an orderly room would never appear by themselves. Artists are mostly visual beings, so seeing two (or 10) things together that should have never been together, helps us more rapidly with the process of doing something new.
Obviously, this is not exclusive to me. Quite the contrary, it is more like the rule than the exception in the art world. Just to solidify this concept, I made this little video which shows many great and well known artists (from the present and the past) creating in their own personal little messes.. I hope you enjoy it.
