Hello I feel close and in sink with much you are saying,whichever media. The human “condition”…. I wonder what questions you will find yourself asking? How important is a common vernacular? A bit of shock in “talking head”- action painting ?… lovely to be part of your journey.
Nancy, the human condition is obviously a large question. It literally makes our prefrontal cortex light on fire! But more to “my” point…is I find a great deal of stress, critical thinking/analysis and expectations are laid on most people in our current culture. And as “bad” as it can seem I also find that most people I encounter also have moments of pleasure, experiences of shining joy and daily smiles. So why aren’t we focusing on those? Maybe that is what spiritual practices supplied in the past and currently but not as simply. And art practice- not only the artifact,,,but the practice and making of art for all! It is an outward expression of an inner state of being.
Thanks, be well, Tom
