“Why Artistry is an Experience & Not an Explanation”
SUMMARY OF THE PODCAST:
We always dig deep on these “Not So Serious” conversations. We stumble upon some interesting realizations about our perceptions and evolution as artists through the questions we ask ourselves at different stages of our lives and what they reveal.
POINT #1: “CURIOSITY IS THE STARTING POINT”
-If you have an interest in getting into an art form or perhaps going in a new direction with one you have been practicing, follow it. It may just be the doorway to a new passion. If not, you at least explored the idea and will probably learn a lot about yourself.
POINT #2: “LEARN WHAT IT IS YOU REALLY DO”
-Perhaps you are beyond the point of curiosity and you may truly love the art you engage with. Now it’s important that you begin to look at what you really do in your art. What is the art really doing? What is it really there for? What is the experience that you are looking for within it? WHAT is a great doorway question that will take you beyond your current vision.
POINT #3: “‘WHY’ IS ALMOST IMPOSSIBLE TO ANSWER”
-Knowing why we do what we do is not necessarily something we can logically answer. The answer tends to be more of an experience and an emotion as opposed to an objective assessment. Pursuing the why can send you in an endless circle and become maddening.
