This Ephemeral series recreates the visual journey of a day in the life of an artist. This series uses 14140 pieces of plastic building blocks to highlight the creative process of wading through the blur of endless ideas and hazy daily distractions yet somehow finding that burst of focus in which creativity thrives. This clarity is not limited to standard office hours and often is heightened during the supreme hours namely midnight, dawn, noon and dusk. At first glance this rectangle appears simply inspired by the colours of its external environment to a glassy perfection. Upon closer inspection one notices intricate details relating to heritage, history, culture and the stresses that come with choosing a creative life. Whether it’s the flag of ones origins or a pattern native to ones lineage, the essence of the artist will always be woven into the work.
