“In the beginning there was nothing, not even this…” is a live Dodalism* painting performance series in its third installment: “Once you start…continue”. The series focus is on the action of creating through free forming and stream of consciousness expression in a public setting. This time lapse was shot at the Toronto Richview Library as part of 2011 Culture Days in Canada over a five hour period.
Dodalism (Doo-da-lism, root word: doodle): to do, express, create, play, learn, and explore consciously and with a sense of wonder from one’s essence / spirit. It is a creative approach akin to playing, using scribbling or a seemingly chaotic approach to expression. Inspiration emerges from the moment at hand and responds to awareness of the internal and external environment, which gives the work a poetic quality.
