Ceramic sculpture by Agueda Zabisky
Blog Post 9 – Agueda Zabisky
In the previous post, I was talking about simplifying. So today I decided to do an exercise in personifying my work for Creative Pinellas (a little reminiscent of my branding projects where I tried to personify a company to understand it better). Deep down it is an organization of ideas of what I set out to convey.
I am made of pieces (symbolized by geometric shapes) that I collect along the way. I arrived with nothing and gained love, knowledge, intelligence, strength, courage. But on the other hand, I also gained selfishness, fear, anger and much more.
Sometimes, I manage to make fittings and some forms complete themselves, generating states of euphoria and happiness. Other times, I make mistakes, I feel lost, full of doubts and I think that nothing fits and this causes me anguish, anxiety and sadness. Others still, even confused, I have a lot of fun.
But deep down, there is something I can’t explain and that keeps me going. It is as if I knew that deep down everything needs to come into harmony, and that’s my challenge.
No one has the same pieces as me, and no one can arrange them for me. Obstacles happen all the time, but they are nothing more than pieces that I have to organize and balance.
I know it is not possible to do this all at once because I don’t know how to do it. I am learning along the way and building my life every moment. It is a continuous balance of everything I am adding to what I want to achieve.
If in the end I have managed to put many of these pieces together, I will know that I am leaving wiser and more complete than when I arrived.
