“Mental Block” by Emily Moore addresses the issue that artists, writers and creatives alike seem to encounter from time to time, “seemingly emerging from no where”.
In the words of the artist “’5 Owl, Ocean Beach’ is an homage to the all-night, 5 owl bus-line that runs along Golden Gate Park, finally ending at Ocean Beach. I live in the Avenues, about a mile from the ocean. This piece was inspired by my practice of taking midnight walks to the beach to clear my head, stretch my legs, and for a ceremonial sip of salt water in the dark. Then I ride the bus back home.”
Leon Loucheur describes the process of creating as “A journey of exploration. An artist’s thoughts, habits, instincts, and history- these are the pixels that together create the portrait of a creative being. The artists themselves are a facilitating conduit; the elements beneath the conscious surface organize, interlace, and emerge from the cocoon of self. It is the Grand Magic, the emergent properties of style, substance, and self.”
