“Why Creating Art With Substance is Simple”
SUMMARY OF THE PODCAST:
As artists, we have grand intentions about saying something meaningful and profound in our work. How do we do that? We explore how creating art with substance is actually quite simple when you understand the process it takes to do so. Substance isn’t so much what you put in as what is revealed to you.
POINT #1: “START SIMPLE, FIND THE SUBSTANCE”
-Trying to make the most complex and substantial work from the outset is not very realistic but doesn’t make it impossible. Begin with a simple spark and idea and find the depth as you go one bridge at a time.
POINT #2: “WE KNOW VERY LITTLE ABOUT OUR IDEAS”
-We don’t really know where our great ideas come from or how far we can take them until we choose to engage with them. Through our attention and intention we begin to uncover the complexities that are already there.
POINT #3: “IDEAS REVEAL THEMSELVES DIFFERENTLY”
-Sometimes our creative ideas come to us very well laid out and others require a little more sifting through to find the gold. What matters most is whether we decide to explore it or not.
