Making art is a personal thing.
It emerges from trust in your intuition.
Making personal art is not easy. What is easy is making images that everyone has seen before; we do it unconsciously, because to some extent that is the normative way of seeing. Looking inward to intuit what you feel about what is in front of you is the goal.
Emotion is catalyzed into the work. Divorced, then, from your consciousness and set into the world of objects, where it becomes a work of art. It lives apart from the humdrum world, complete in its energy, evocativeness, power.
Making art is humbling; our personal vision takes us where it will and we follow. Open. Accepting. Grateful.
