Let me begin this issue by telling you that I am a bit of a radical. A radical thinker. But actually it’s not all that radical to me and my ideas are not very likely novel.
I have arrived at where I am now through a series of continual failures to fit in. I am the square peg that doesn’t fit in the round hole, or perhaps whole.
It has taken me much of my life to finally give myself license to stop trying to do things in the ‘prescribed’ manner. It has been a journey of unlearning and creating on my own. Perhaps that could be considered one method of finding your own creativity and recipe for making art.
Maybe radical is too radical of a definition. But let’s talk about art in this issue. What a dangerous topic to attempt to conquer! But before digging into the subject, you should know that rather than providing you with concrete answers, it is more likely that I will be providing many questions.
It is my belief that in life, the best questions don’t have one size fits all answers. Rather, the best questions, in my opinion, typically lead to more questions.
Some questions may never have answers and other answers will vary from person to person. They are fluid and even change over time for each person as do our memories.
Look at that, another segue from the previous issue. I assure you that it was not planned that way. Coincidences and chance are great for art and creativity! And perhaps all roads lead to the same place eventually.
