Art is a continuous process of becoming. A making and unmaking of each idea, form, shape, line, that moves through the creator to that which is created. We are as much shaped, altered, and invigorated with spirit by the process of creation as that which is created. It is a devotional practice. It is part self-indulgent, part self-sacrifice...once created, it is no longer ours to keep. It lives elsewhere, no longer something to be carried or housed exclusive to ourselves alone. Art is transformation + transmutation; perhaps the richest, most universally recognizable, and diverse language that humans speak. Fluency is the only requirement when turning your heart to gold.
