Artistic Behavior Demystified (Portrait of the Artist)


“Passion” is the term I’ve often heard bandied about by lay people, trying to understand the inspirational source of artistic behavior... Like it’s some sort of fitful state of the divined soul!

Being a third generation atheist, I can say that I have never received any inspirational juice from a “passion play”. However, I do believe in cycling, for in my head visual ideas are con-stantly racing round and round. Eventually these images become so muscular that they de-mand physical manifestation. Inspiration thus, is a development lab, wrenched by the artist.
