I'm struggling; dialogue at JNG, 5.19.18

I'm struggling to discern how images- colors, subjects, values, theme...- fit within this, these current matrices; learning how to convey what my work can mean given the visual glut. A colleague recently quoted Richard Dawkins in relation to whatever it is I/we apparently do: “There is an anaesthetic of familiarity, a sedative of ordinariness which dulls the senses and hides the wonder of existence. For those of us not gifted in poetry, it is at least worth while from time to time making an effort to shake off the anaesthetic... but we can recapture that sense of having just tumbled out to life on a new world by looking at our own world in unfamiliar ways.” Thanks Allen.
