    the meaning of the sentence

    Barragon tapped into a sort of inspired artistic craziness that he needed to break the mould to move forward and it was on this landscape that he developed a new style of house and garden.

    I'm having trouble understanding the first part of this sentence.
    Could someone please rewrite it?

    Thanx a lot!

    Re: the meaning of the sentence

    I am not a teacher, but I am a native speaker.

    I will try to re-write the bolded part of the sentence.

    Barragon tapped into a sort of inspired artistic craziness that he needed to break the mould to move forward

    Barragon looked within himself to find an artistic feeling, but that artistic feeling was wild and hard for him to control. He needed this "inspired artistic craziness" to create something different than anything that had been done before. (or "...than anything he had ever done before..." depending on whether the sentence means "what he needed to move forward" or "what his art needed to move forward", which is not clear from the sentence)

    I know it turned into lots of words, but it was kind of hard for me to explain. Maybe someone else could re-write it to be more clear, but use less words.

    Does that make more sense?
