“I believe that it’s time to say our first relationship and responsibility is with the Creative Spirit.”
“Not to brand it, not to sell it, not to convince others with it, but to have a relation first and foremost where we live with the act of creation.”
“If you (do and share your art) and no one listens, and you bring it out no one seems to care, realize that your relationship is not with them, it’s with Creation.”
“And I believe that level of intimacy, that willingness to protect that which is tender in us, and to share it with those who inspire us and to create a greater ensemble. Then we apply greater wisdom, we don’t just share it randomly, we say, ‘This matters to me.'”
“I tell artists, “Don’t ask people what they think of your art, ask them what your art makes them think.”
“Let them know you’re not interested in a critique, you’re much more interested in a conversation because one makes you tired and the other inspires you and art comes from inspiration.”
