The Art of Beauty

I’ve always felt that art is sacred and that to be an artist is a great privilege, a privilege which carries great responsibilities and requires a deep level of respect. The natural world is already beautiful and for an artist to add something of substance and value to what already exists is a complex challenge. To that end each artist is faced with finding their own way of contributing something substantial into the world and they must do it in a most challenging environment. Their challenge (should they choose to accept it) is to  come to terms with the complexities of society and find a path through to their own consciousness and connect with their creative impulse and truth.

In my own life I have fought to maintain my purity as an artist in what are quite a hostile circumstances and now I feel that it has all finally come together. I feel this because I’m closer to the point where my ideas flow freely almost as a stream of consciousness, like when I write, though I still have much work to do before I’m totally free.

As an artist I see my life as a kind of dialogue or conversation and this has been brought about by the sharing of my work on the internet, where people are free to comment and reflect on my contribution. It’s hard to explain, but if I listen and observe the reactions to my work I hear things which guide me and connect me to a broader context. I first noticed this about four years ago when through my discontent I started to listen more and slowly but surely the answers to issues which troubled me, trickled into my life.

It’s a curious relationship which artists have with folks as many people seem to value art and respect the freedoms which artists enjoy and their contributions to society. Because of this I feel people are often open with me which brings so much to my own life, as conversations are often triggered by the gestures of my work. Though I’m guilty of being tunnel visioned but I can’t think of a better way of life than being an artist no matter how I look upon it. I do believe this curious relationship/dialogue that artists can  have through their work seems to bring about the possibility of a relevance beyond egotistical indulgence. An art which is inclusive because it was influenced by the relevance of dialogue within society.

My current conclusion from being an artist is that the world is beautiful and life is beautiful and with such a great gift of infinite possibility it would be foolish not to celebrate it with my art. And that is what I do, I push ideas around without fear and undue concerns, slowly  expressing myself with a growing freedom.
