Reflections on Art and Life
It seems to me that artists don’t really create anything new. I feel that everything has already been created, but it has not been brought into light, it has not been birthed. Our role is only to assist in its unveiling. In that sense I am only a midwife, not even a mother, and certainly not the Creator of the DNA.
One of my virtual paintings entitled “Medusa” has a fantastic deep blue swirl. I stare at it with adoration. Not because I have invented blue. I just happened to be there when it needed help coming out into the light and I gave it a shape. And maybe it’s as simple as that.
