Occasional Angel by arminmersmann Occasional Angel :iconarminmersmann:arminmersmann 1,970 1,086


After spending 3 years in a university that was very un-supportive of my work, and having to entwine myself with the pompousness of the art world with all its 'juxtaposition' and other mind numbing jargon, i had come very close to losing all my enthusiasm and passion for art. The title and act felt serious and as if forced upon me in a way that just distanced me from it.

But after a couple of years break from art, where i have done a lot of travelling, camping, reading and learning, i dabbled in it again. I found that my fire feels like its back, only this time im coming back with experience and presence on my shoulders. I feel, though i have a long way to go in many people's eyes, that i now look at work very clearly and can difine what makes something great vs something immense. I have been working on a new self portrait for the last 3 months, and its coming along great
