the angry art days

like people, I have come to accept the fact that art too gets angry and mad and out of control. It cannot be about the beautiful things of life all the time and sometimes when I pick up pens and papers to make something, everything but the satisfaction of a well-crafted piece stares me back.

welcome to the angry art days

angry art days is just a term floating in my mind that justifies my lack of inspiration. These days, where I cannot make things exactly how I want or string words to compose poetry that reflects everything precisely, are hard to endure. I feel like there is someone else roaming around in my body that even my mirror fails to recognize. On angry art days, I cannot recognize myself anymore.

causes:
I am unsure what is the real cause but more or less, it's the lack of concentration for me. I am guilty of doing things because they are supposed to be done. Perhaps art minds that to an extent where it just stops happening at all.

cures:
there is no cure that works all the time. But just trying making/writing/sketching things in spite of their flaws keeps me going, making me optimistic that at the end of the day, maybe art will not be angry anymore and will come back home.

here is my favorite writing piece on art from my poetry notebook
you asked me
how i made art 
and
i used all
long, shiny, pretentious, 
words

but the truth
is different 
i never made art 
i brought the hurricanes 
sobs, revenge, stories
on the stark white sheet

and it looked
something like
art — it was art

here I am, typing this post away amidst the peak of my angry art days. I don't know how long it would take for the inspiration and willpower to return to me; seconds, minutes, days or weeks. But it will because I am taking up the only cure I know: fixing it with making whatever remains of art I am left with.

in the chaos, I got th beautiful beautiful news of my blog being shortlisted for Blogosphere Magazine awards' category of arts & craft. Just being nominated among allthe creative and amazing people has been a wonderful feeling, but if you could take a minute or two out to vote for my blog, I would be so grateful.
