RAS. is a professional Visual Artist from Washington D.C. The former Graphic and Information Designer holds two 5 hour shifts a day creating Fine Art, and insists that every single thing about his art and himself is made up by others. Those with the best thoughts collect his work.
Art is a direct communiation of the Heart made manifest. Thoughts about Art are direct communication of the Mind, like what you are reading now. I am not interested in Mind.~
The highest point of the Artistic Experience is most definitely not the final product. It is in the blank slate... the void canvas... the bare plate. The height of all Art is the small Moment when the artist becomes completely empty and accesses Nothingness. It is the Apex, and all forms of expression spring from this Moment. My question is, can the Artist stay as Nothingness and still create somethingness, and remain at the Apex. My answer is, yes.~
