Creative Process...

The creative process is a cocktail of instinct, skill, culture and a highly creative feverishness. It is not like a drug; it is a particular state when everything happens very quickly, a mixture of consciousness and unconsciousness, of fear and pleasure; it’s a little like making love, the physical act of love.Francis Bacon
Francis Bacon so eloquently expressed the pure joy it is to create and all the elements necessary for it to happen. I also like to add using materials/objects that have a starting point of zero enhances the process.  It is a magical, almost Zen - like state of mind that I'm in when the objects, thoughts and Visions are forged into a work of art. It dosent always happen, nor can it be forced. 
The Atelier of Assemblage has been on fire lately with restored and new works being completed at a steady rate.
