I do like finding old bits of wood with creature like faces on them. I also prefer keeping them as 'creatures' rather than pinning them down to a specific animal, this leaves more space for imagination. Reminds me of something Virginia Wolf wrote in a letter to Roger Fry '...directly when I'm told what a thing means, it becomes hateful to me'.
Of course I can't say for sure if she was onto the same thing here but it clarified feelings I'd had about explaining in words what my work is about. I could say my work is mainly mythical creatures, trees and lanscapes in a Zen-palette on paper, but I would prefer people to experience it for themselves as it does somehow loose the synergy when pinned down into words. Sometimes things are unboxable!
