Art room insomnia 10

No, I didn’t contrive this. It really was a discarded canvas and a notebook lying on the floor in my art room. Only the association and the words that came later.

Art Room Insomnia

If I wake up in the middle of the night and can’t get back to sleep, I sometimes go into my art room. It’s pretty much off limits to anyone else as, like many creative spaces, its full of stuff and messy; junk on the floor, things I’m collectiong for projects I may or may not ever do, unfinished or abandoned projects and all sort of objects that appeal to me.

Invariably, no matter what the reason for entering my space, I take out the camera, fascinated by the prospect of creating composition from chaos. Its a bit mad, and even more crazy to presume that anyone would be remotely interested in this. So absorbing is the process that I forget all about what’s been keeping me awake.
