“Revealing one’s vision is often challenging. Clarifying what one sees is difficult. Being brave enough to face truth is challenging. As artists, we’ve all signed up for this challenge. I am with you, there are many people with you, the school is with you, Life is with you. We are here for each other to develop our skills and encourage the actions of art in order to reveal to the outer world that which we see in the inner world.
Each one of us is a unique receptor, a perspective, a vanishing point, a line of sight, an angle, an awareness function of Life. We all receive from and express through different angles, which are angels. Each one of us is a unique angel of perspective. Each one of us is a unique awareness function of life experiencing life through different angles. Life sees Life through multiple angles. Life comes to know Life by way of the many and diverse lines of sight of Life. Angels of Perspective… Unique Awareness Functions of Life, this is what we are.
We each experience visions that arise from within and from without. When we document our visions in form, we call it ART. We art in order to communicate with others and to ourselves. We art to transmit our vision and reveal to Life….the truths of the matters of Life. So this is what we are up to…. See-ing and Making Sense in the form of sights to be seen. We are art-ing the world, we are informing the world to the form of the world.
It’s not easy, to describe the reality of one’s sight… which are the scenes one senses. It is challenging to translate vision into form. The discovery or un-covering of one’s angel is a process, and the work of revealing the genius of the angle can be difficult. I would suggest we stop caring that it’s not easy. We have work to do, and our work can only be done now… Art is made in the present. Our work requires us to focus our attention and hone our skills in order to develop our minds and our hands so that we can with-stand the truth of our visions and transmit them into form. To resist truth, is to suffer. Worrying, judging, fretting, fearing, comparing, blaming, and complaining are a few ways to suffer… and avoid making art. If you want to stop suffering, relax and realize that this is hard, and it’s not a problem. Take courage, face the image…reveal the vision…and may Life revel in the sights seen.”
