Influences and the eclectic me

I’ve been looking at this work by James Luckett for a few days. After the very first glance I didn’t want to look at it more, because I was immediately reminded of work I’m engaged with at the present and didn’t want to be influenced by another artist… especially a contemporary one.

BUT, it wasn’t possible to avoid and even if I’m influenced by the images, it taught me a lesson that isn’t about fearing to appear the same as another creator, but allowing art inside, no matter if it’s like your own or not. I felt I gained a silent partner in a conversation.

And it further helps me to embrace my very eclectic nature.

Thanks to James Luckett. You rock.
