Traveling Together on the Journey
1/12/2020 5:37 PM
Over and over, I paint this space because it is loaded with significance. My art making is very much about reconnecting with all the things that happened in this space, and it’s deeply meaningful for me. I am in spiritual limbo: painting the “Space Between” what once was and now is. I am floating in the “Space Between.”
Floating in the “Space Between” is a stop on my journey. I need to spend time here. I’m not stuck in a way that’s unhealthy. What’s so wrong about going back in time and visiting a place that you’re happy to be in? If my paintings let me do that, I’ve just taken a little journey and I’ll be back to the present soon enough!
How does your creative practice help you on your journey? Does it let you go places you couldn’t otherwise go? Maybe you won’t share your answer here, but I hope the question makes you think about your own journey and the ways that art makes that journey richer and more meaningful. Consider that in spite of the fact that we don’t even know each other, we will be traveling together on this journey. We do this through the simple act of choosing to go where our canvas takes us. Onward!
