The meaning behind the title Clap is quite simple this time. I happened upon a song I hadn’t heard for a long time. Ever stumble upon an old song or image that inspired you to follow your current path? Sometimes we forget about our old inspirations and what led us to create the art or work that we do now. Often times, it’s good to keep a folder or collection of works that keep you going when you’re feeling discouraged or uninspired. Often, artists are unable to see their work in the same light that others do. We begin viewing our old portfolio with disapproval. Next time you find yourself looking at your work or that of artists who’ve inspired you, try to recall the feeling you first experienced when creating or studying those pieces. Art takes time and practice. Remember where you started and be proud of how far you come. Every artist has their own unique vision, and at TMI we’re proud to see our students grow.
