“The feelings of desperation and unhappinness are more useful to an artist than the feeling of contentment, because desperation and unhappinness stretch your whole sensibility”. A quote by Francis Bacon but one I’m inclined to disagree with. Rufus Wainwright once admitted that he was terrified to settle down into a happy relationship, because without the emotional drama that came from all those dysfunctional love affairs, he was afraid of losing access to ‘that dark lake of pain’ he felt was critical to his music. I disagree that we should all be addicted to suffering, we need to be able to trust pleasure and utilise it to help create art. Too many artists put their faith in anguish. To have faith in the suffering muse, can cause us to become tormented artists, or to fetishise suffering.  To trust love to create art, is more valuable for our mental health. Love your work, love it like it loves you and let it love you. There’s a trust in that love, the fiercest trust of all and I have in spades for you. Huge congratulations to all the artists featured this week.

In keeping with my New Year Resolutions, you’ll find me at the press preview this week of Diane Arbus: In the beginning and Kader Attia: The Museum of Emotion at the Hayward Gallery, SE1. I’ll report back but am expecting it to be nothing short of fabulous. It’s open to the public from 13 February until 6 May.

Thank you to all the talented artists for submitting your works to our showcase this week. If you would like your work to be considered for entry in to our weekly Mobile Photography and Art Flickr Group, please submit it to our dedicated group, here. You can also submit images to our Instagram tag for this section #mobilephotographyandimagery.
