Part of my ongoing exploration of Art for Entrepreneurs - creating work that reflects and supports the process of business building.
'Kauboi' reflects the necessity and benefits of failure in achieving success. By building on past mistakes, dead-ends, and rejections, a complex and varied image emerges.
"all successes are built on a pile of failures"
- Brooke Castillo (entrepreneur and business coach)
A canvas composed of stitched pieces serves as the foundation for a collage of experiments and failures. This piece required a commitment to a process of discovery, a willingness to take imperfect action, and the discipline to build on the results until a coherent whole could emerge.
The title 'Kauboi' is a contemporary take on the myth of the cowboy - rugged individuals braving uncertainty and hardship while navigating vast open spaces in the pursuit of success.
