There is an almost contradictory value in the unseen pieces of art, sketches, doodles and drafts that artists produce. The time spent sketching, researching and experimenting, without the intention of the work ever being shown, is invaluable creative time. This time that goes unnoticed is fundamental to the evolution of any artist’s creative process. Working for hours in private, researching, practicing, playing and not knowing where the process may lead can be incredibly fulfilling. Other times, it can be the most destabilising part of perfecting an art.
