For a Fire

by Hilary Clarcq

I’ve heard creativity compared to a cycle of breath. During the inhale, artists absorb various types of stimuli. With the exhale, that inspiration is transformed into something outward: the art in whatever form it takes.

I’m undergoing a prolonged inhale right now: absorbing a lot, but unsure what to do with it quite yet. It can feel like I’m not being “productive” since I’m not actively producing much. But I’m trying to see this time as an essential period to gather dead wood and detritus as fuel for later fire and action. This painting is a reflection on that idea.
