Emotions of performance
The act of Performance is a culmination of many different emotions.
In order to Perform you have to Practice. This painting brings up similar feelings of finding a practice room. It is a routine that has to be established.
These workers are not to miss a single seed. In music, it is tireless work to practice the tiniest details but that is the difference between good and great.
You're about 5 days away from the performance... The red color and dark lines represents stress. The two figures represent the battle between a anxiety and apathy.
The day before the performance... There is very little more you can do to change the course of the performance. What's done is done. The Fetal Position tends to be a natural pose.
Just hours before the performance... This represents the state of mind. The curved lines represents the difficulty to focus. Of course, the scream represents panic.
45 seconds before the first note... These stairs bring me to the walk to the stage and to the feeling of being alone. No one can practice for you, no one can perform for you.
5 seconds before first note... If you dare to look around in to the crowd, this is a familiar sight. With Stage Fright, your eyes lose focus- blurs of light zip around.
The Performance... You become hyper-aware of what you are doing, what you look like, what you sound like, and what mistakes you are making. The audience seems to be too close to you.
Reflection... What the audience never sees is the meticulous work you put in to make this performance happen, just like each tiny, purposeful brushstroke on a beautiful work of art.
5 seconds after performance... This boy puts his umbrella down just to make sure it is truly over to be relieved that the rain is over. This is a beautiful feeling after a performance.
30 minutes after performance... The light blues represent freedom from constraint. The single bird flying represents the feeling of joy and life.
