A turmoil is a state of mind of confused agitation, of deep trouble. Turmoil is also a weather phenomenon that results in a violent but short storm.
The two phenomena are strangely related because they are often short, unexpected, episodic, brutal, violent.
Often the desire to get something or someone torments. This turmoil can cause injuries that sometimes take time to heal.
Torment in a spirit is a clandestine enemy that is said to be difficult to fight. I am often tormented by negative thoughts. They sometimes take over my positive actions. These moments in mind are tormented tend to affect me, to destroy me. I do not have to appease myself.
The torments of the spirit are unleashed brutally without me seeing them coming, without me being able to overcome them. During these times of extreme turmoil, I have to face trying to appease them, to return to a softer reality. Fights are sometimes difficult and energy intensive.
Painting harasses me and torments me in a thousand ways, like the most demanding mistress. Eugène Delacroix – Journal.
This quote from Eugène Delacroix, I did it mine over time. When I create art prints, I am beset by doubt. I am always looking for perfection knowing that it is inaccessible.
For me, the turmoil of the mind translates into photography by very clean scenes of natural landscapes but with very heavy skies. The clouds are black, smoky, dense. I try to translate into my artistic works, the fact that a tormented state is brutal, sudden but that it does not last. The storms are for me a perfect illustration of the turmoil. It's a brief state in which I want to say that I am a bit lost, that I have to ask for help to move forward.
