I can draw realistically if I try hard, no doubt if I practiced every day I could get quite good at it, however I find it really boring. In art history and theory class / lectures I’ve been reading a lot of theory and there was something by Picasso or Matisse or someone about artists and perception and how they must transform what they perceive and not merely replicate it. I always find that type of artwork more engaging and therefore that’s the work I want to make. Like if you compare Picasso’s drawings from when he was 12 (YES - 12 look at them!) which are so technically perfect to his later work, I think it’s obvious that his later work is so much more rich, expressive and interesting even though that torso is a realistic representation.
