serene.art.photos This is the Fruit piercing moth, shot in the Western ghats of India and the subject for my artwork 'Velvet Shimmer' seen in my timeline. It was composed in just a few seconds, focused with a macro lens and photographed with a handheld camera. It was shot in the middle of the night, as most moths are active at night.
I very rarely show my face or introduce myself around here. Mainly because I have always wanted to keep my account focused on my work but also because I I just have a feeling that nobody cares about how I look like or what I have to say. It is an insecurity thing I guess but I do have so much to share! So here you have a few random words from me.
I consider my art journey a very spiritual thing and I am also incredibly interested in the physiology behind a creative life. The way my work shapes me as a person is more important to me than being a great artist, a really good illustrator or receiving recognition for my work. I think there will always be a part of me that thinks that because of my background or just the fact that I am Chilean, I am not meant to experience success, but silencing that voice through trying my best every day is what I am here for. Finding out and accepting that I am just as capable as anyone else is my goal.
Finding peaceful moments through creating is also essential to me. Is the only way to stop all the constant chatter in my head, the one that worries, the one that always wants to be somewhere else. Making things slows everything down and I couldn’t live without it anymore.
When you guys tell me a piece I made made you feel peaceful I truly believe this is because that peace I felt when making it was transferred in to it.
I have the hardest time accepting the mundane nature of life, it is almost unbearable for me at times. This is how I escape from it. I paint places I want to visit, women I want to be, things that don’t exists.
In general I feel like there’s a big hole in my chest that needs to be filled with I don’t know what and I think I am trying to find out what it is through art. Just really making sure I don’t look for answers in the wrong places or with the wrong people.
Is there anything you want to know?
I am having a Q&A in stories ❤️
Ps: The “friendship” shirt I am wearing in this photo will be available some time next week 🤗
Nou daar hangt ze te shinen op onze muur. Deze prachtige pixel IXXI van @ixxiyourworld 🖤 Herkennen jullie haar? En nee ik ben het niet. Moet zeggen dat deze ook wel erg lastig is. Het begint met een K en eindigt op ate😁 Ik heb voor deze pixel IXXI gekozen omdat deze kleuren perfect matchen in ons huis. Via de tool op de site van @ixxiyourworld kun je hem super makkelijk samen stellen. Ze hebben een erg snelle levering en met de handleiding makkelijk in elkaar te zetten. Wil je weten voor welke foto ik gekozen heb? Kijk dan even in mijn stories.
