Artist Question: Does What We See, Inform Our Art


Does What We Create, Inform What We See ?


Pretty good questions, don’t you think?

I started thinking it about it when I recently rewrote my Artist Statement. I kind of redo it every time it is asked for 😉 I guess it’s a subject I like, so I like to rethink it and update it, often.

Here’s a part of what I recently wrote…

“Art for me, is about curating. Whether it be for my blog, or online shop, a wall in my home, a garden, a stroll, a remodel job or a retail space that I am involved with. I don’t really see it as something separate from any part of my life. It’s part of Everything that I do”.

Maybe the answer to the title of this posting is …Both.

Maybe some days, what I See makes me create.

Maybe some days, what I Create makes me more alert, to what I See.

Here is a collection of images that definitely show that at least This morning when I selected them, there is a curatorial eye going on.

Curatorial : One who gathers something, organizes it and makes it available to the public.

There’s no Doubt, that it’s kind of a chicken/egg and which came first kind of question.

What would you say about your own life/art?

See it, make it?

Make it, see it?
