Art is a collaboration

4 December 2012

Art is a collaboration between God and the artist, and the less the artist does the better.

  1. Art enables us to find ourselves and lose ourselves at the same time. –Thomas Merton

  2. Also the reader (if your art is writing). When a writer writes that desirable “C” (not an “O” and not a parenthesis), the reader fills in the rest with his or her own history, experience, and attitudes.

  3. Yeah, but God does kinda expect you to have learned how to use a paintbrush (or comma in writing terms)

    IMHO, not actually knowing God personally. For all I know the truest art might be created by toddlers finger painting. I’ll have to ask as I pass through on my way to the down escalator.
