The Rebel (Biro)

Day 99.

I sense the beginning of a new obsession coming on with this Artist.

You walk through a series of arches, so to speak, and then, presently, at the end of a corridor, a door opens and you see backward through time, and you feel the flow of time, and realize you are only part of a great nameless procession.

Day 85

This is another of my work drawings. Over the years I have made several which I stored away as carefully as my more complete art works. To me they are evidence of a parallel me and also stand as stepping stones to the person I was becoming.

The nascent artist in me nudging away throwing out these fragmentary images. It provides a clue to to all the years of restless dissatisfaction that belonging to a desk invoked. Sending coded subconscious messages to myself.

It was a rebellion of sorts too. Acting out with line and colour if only to myself.

A sneering quest for meaning. I can see a spiky display of humour in their brevity.

Frivolous but important scraps documenting that life for me lay elsewhere.
