Colette Elick's Profile

About

The aesthetic of artistic espression is described as the tasting of flavor or rasa swadana; the quintessential essence of a work of art. A 2-way process, the artist strives for rasa in his work and the conoisseur intuitively detects it. Rasa is bestowed not made. It is not the physical understanding of a creation, but the emotion or empathy, as opposed to sympathy. The artist creates a situation that the viewer enters--a world of illusion, maya--that leads the viewer to a state of empathic bliss.
