the artist‘s eye
If a picture paints a million words, why can’t I paint you?
Yes some pictures have drawn, it for a transient moment, fundamentally the aim of every artist is to arrest motion which is life, by artificial means and hold its fixed so that a hundred years later, when a stranger looks at it, it moves again since it is life. the artist houses the master in his eyes, and deepens the mystery of the mundane.
When the words become unclear, i shall focus with photographs, when images become inadequate, I shall be content with silence says Ansel Adams. For me the words, they create the picture,. As James Baldwin sums it up, all art is a kind of confession, more or less oblique. All artists if they are to survive, are forced at last to the whole story, to vomit the anguish up.
Like Joseph Campbell said, ”myths must be kept alive. The people who can keep it alive are the artist of one kind or another, my artist the pied piper of my world is the wordsmith.”
