“An artist will never be liberated from his suffering”- Garry Mabour
I had a discussion with my daughter today about my bounds as an artist and from where I perceive inspiration and creation originates. My goal is to pass on my acquired life experiences and the contents of my reverie to my children. To share with your children, is to pass on your legacy long after you leave. As she proceeds in her life, I want her to know that while an artist expresses and exemplifies a sense of freedom in his or her creativity, the same endless stream of consciousness that produces beauty will never liberate them from their own suffering. Out of necessity, it is in suffering and the endurance of pain that inspiration and creativity is born.
