I find tension really easy to spot but astonishingly hard to recreate in my own artistic work. I asked a graphic design teacher if it is supposed to feel uncomfortable. He said, "like a rubber band is about to snap". Which is a cool explanation. Visceral
I often look down at the piece of paper I have been using to mix and trial colours and test different approaches - and go "Wow that is a better and more artistic piece of work than the thing I am trying to create". It is confronting. But also super uplifting.
