WHEN MESH LIFE EVOLVES
Updated: Sep 25, 2019
This book began as a photo journal and evolved into a creative diary that chronicles the growth in my work. Through this process, I gained a deeper understanding of who I am as a creative energy and found what motivates me to make certain artistic decisions when sculpting. I loved the process of making this book. Today, I find it to be a resource for new ideas and the root of future works. I EXHALE, AS I FREELY ALLOW MY CREATIVE ENERGY TO GUIDE ME. 'IT' IS THE DRIVER. MY HANDS ARE THE VEHICLE.
About the Book
This book is a detailed look into the creative mind of the artist during the creation process over the years. The birth of each series. How has the thought process changed? What events have influenced the direction of the work?
"I AM NOT MY SKIN. I AM THE SPIRIT WITHIN... AND THAT SPIRIT HAS NO BOUNDARIES." - A T Burwell
My Artist statement for life, is how I define 'PASSION'
“It is the fire in your veins. It will start from your head until it reaches your extremities. It will escape anyway it can. It will explode in the form of creativity! From pencil to paintbrush; from sport to speech. It will use any creative instrument that will allow it to freely express a mood. It is the source of life. Sometimes you can’t define it. Sometimes you can’t explain it. Trying to change it to fit others comfort level is maddening, so… you don’t. It is most satisfied and satisfying when it is expressed from the heart of the true self. It will reveal itself in the way you speak, the way you think, the way you dress, in your actions. You are an energy that is felt. You are a vessel. You were chosen to be a vessel. You become what you breathe; what you emit. You become it and it can exist beyond you. It… is art. And thou art… the artist. This is my artist statement for life.” - A.T. Burwell
