The Creative Process is a Place
In the midst of a creation, an artist is not a creator separate from the work. Instead, the artist is IN the process. And the process is always moving.
Studio of the Mind
An artist inhabits a studio of the mind stocked with intellectual resources of imagination, experience, and wonder.
What emerges from the flowing mind studio? The arts! Visual art, music, poetry, ideas, dance, literature, culinary delights. And what is the function of the arts?
Portal to the Creative ProcessEach artwork functions as a portal back into the creative process. When you buy a piece of original art you have a portal directly into the flow of creativity that produced it. The function of art is to engage the creative process, to get energy from and to give energy back. The ebb and flow of creativity irrigates the imagination and springs open the creative process.
