Path to Freedom http://collin-clarke.artistwebsites.com
I am self taught and very passionate about my work, it gives me a great feeling when my art can inspire life and motivate others.
I have chosen a very interesting topic to talk about today which means alot to me and very close to my heart, ‘Path to Freedom’. This piece of work is my favourite piece to date. I got the inspiration to create this from where I grew up in Jamaica. Growing up, every evening at sunset my friends and i used to go to the river to have a nice swim and a bath, sounds strange; but we could have easily stayed home and have a bath but this was how we wanted to do it, this was refreshing and revitalising.
The river we used to go to called; ‘Water Hole’, I could never forget the feeling we got from the way the sunset made us feel. The glaring brilliant brightness of the evening sun through the path gave us a relaxed atmosphere only the feeling of freedom could create.
We should all feel free to express ourselves and never be afraid. As an artist I got discouraged so many times from so many people close to me, it was sometimes hard to comprehend, but I always remember I can’t not do art, this has and will always be my path to freedom, what is yours?
