I don’t think I’m alone,as a creative person, in having utterly failed to fill the pandemic lockdown with a meaningful career defining response to these strange times. I’ve drawn,painted and sketched. Written obviously. My Magnum Opus is,so far, eluding me.
My Mistresspiece is missing.
It will come as no surprise that I am utterly disappointed by this definition of Mistresspiece.
An outstanding example of female beauty.
What utter bollocks!
A Mistresspiece is career defining creative work by a woman.
It stands alone and is not in my opinion mistress + piece, after masterpiece.
Rant over , time to continue the pondering about my missing Mistresspiece.
To be fair, a missing Mistresspiece is just a symptom of Lockdown Ennui. Expressed by so many people who have failed to do tasks or achieve goals, during Lockdown, that has previously been excused as a failure because of time constraints.
There is something going on in my studio. I doubt very much if it is the Mistresspiece. It hovers somewhere between collage and Palimpsest.
It is an attempt to get down in 2D the swirling thoughts of Pandemic Insomnia, which in turn seems to involve a return visit to those complex and often sinister repetitive dreams of childhood.
To be continued.
