THE:BEGINNING:OF:YOURSELF 

Sonya Rothwell Gallery Beautiful

"If you want to be an artist go to an art supply house and get some ink and some paper and pens and a calligraphy brush and charcoal and aim at virtually whatever is in front of you : The subject matter is not that important : And then try and cheat and deceive and lie and exaggerate and most particularly distort as absolutely – as extremely as you can : And after some six months or a year, usually in a state of intense frustration, you’ll see something that you truly have never seen before : That is the beginning of yourself, and that heralds the beginning of different pleasure"
Iconic Australian artist Brett Whiteley describes the process of becoming an artist in his notes to a young painter : : Sonya Rothwell's weapons of mass production
