art

A Quote by Kaya McLaren on art, conversation, language, auras, creativity, code, secrets, kaya mclaren, and church of the dog

This is why I love art. Art is the medium. those of us who see the unexplainable converse in.  It's safe. And those who don't see the neon dots floating around people, the sparkles falling from the sky, and the auras, of course, can just write it off as imagination and creativity. In that respect, it's a coded conversation.

A Quote by Madeleine L'Engle on writing, painting, composing, creativity, and art

When we are writing, or painting, or composing, we are, during the time of creativity, freed from normal restrictions, and are opened to a wider world, where colors are brighter, sounds clearer, and people more wondrously complex than we normally realize.

A Quote by Madeleine L'Engle on art and birthing

I believe that each work of art, whether it is a work of great genius, or something very small, comes to the artist and says, "Here I am. Enflesh me. Give birth to me."

The artist's experience lies so unbelievably close to the sexual, to its pain and its pleasure, that the two phenomena are really just different forms of one and the same longing and bliss.
