If there is someway to express or describe the way a visual idea is create, you might say that it is a combination of elements acting at the same time:
Ones' background, all of what you have learned and are still learning; the circumstances of your environment, your moments and experiences with every idea; the intent of your work, where it is going or aiming in terms of your communication with your visual reader.
You can say that I am an impulse translator; I am a finder not a searcher. I don't make elaborate thoughts when I start my work. I make them after I finish.
The moment has to be spontaneous, impulsive and passionate, with certain kind of magic, when the idea is captured in the canvas or on the screen, is when you get the totality. Every thing else is decoration.
