Artists are lovers

05 Feb, 2018

Artists are lovers.

They are in love with a kind of reflection of their primal soul that they glimpse when they exert both the capacity and the courage to bridge the distance between longing and longed for.

This distance, called pain, is the reason most people aren’t artists, and the reason most artist’s aren’t very good.

To realize ones art, an artist must accept and become witness to the very condition almost everyone else is trying to escape.
