The renaissance of the emotional
Throughout the years I have learned much about what true art is, and what it really means to create it. First, I’d like to say that art is a renaissance of your emotional journey. It must mean something to you, it isn’t just a business and another transaction. It must reflect the way you think and feel, which is why true art is for the brave among us.
And then I’d like to add that to create art you must stop copying and trying to emulate others. It is a form of expression unique to you. Through your book, or through your dance, or through your craft you must find freedom. If you live frustrated for the commercial aspect of your art, then is because you haven’t found true freedom yet and your art probably needs uniqueness.
How do you find uniqueness..??
What is it about you that is different from how others think and feel?? What is the real reason for you taking days, weeks, months, years working on your art and then wanting to share that art with others?? What is it that you think you can bring to the world with your expression?? What have you learned from past experiences, especially from the painful ones, as great art is born from the pain we have suffered and the lessons in it??
Your uniqueness is only found in you, by you. But you have to take the time to actually explore yourself and ask yourself the difficult and profound questions. The true artist and his art is born from this self-exploration. It is the greatest form of intimacy with yourself, and it will frustrate you and anger you at first; however, in time, through honesty and patience with yourself, you will become stronger and more creative for it. The superior artist.
