IN THE MIND OF AN ARTIST

The Interview – Part 3

Answered By Melissa LaFontaine

Which character flaw do you despise the most and how you deal with these individuals during an unavoidable encounter? 

I don’t know if character flaw is the right word for it, but I do tend to dislike those who consume, by any means necessary, other people’s attention without adding value to the lives of the people whose attention they have drawn. I’ve learned that resistance is futile with those types and they are best avoided at all cost.

Is the relationship between you (the artist) and your art a healthy one? Or artistic growth comes with a price, and if so, what is it?

The only price there is to be paid by being an artist, from my perspective, is that there is an acute loneliness when others cannot join you for the ride. Sometimes an artist goes too deep and our motivations can become lost in translation. Or the audience is interested in superficial and dissociation and entertainment which can create a feeling of having no utility or product that will provide income or value to society, making you question yourself or worse. It can feel like trying to sell honey to bees who somehow got themselves hooked on vinegar. You need to develop a will of steel to ride that insanity out and keep on producing accurate reflections of your soul and observations anyway.

About ‘In The Mind Of An Artist’ 

‘In The Mind Of An Artist’ aims to uncover the artistic mind, the perspective of individuals living under the influence of art.   By and large we live collective lives, but artists see life a bit; well sometimes very different than others.  As some seem to float from one artwork to another; others are deeply encrusted in their work making it difficult to catch that ride offered by the world around them, creating realities in which one person (the artist) must navigate in order to survive in society.  If you are an artist and this speaks to you, please contact me if you like to share your story.

This series of articles, written by artists is about the artist’s way of processing and reacting to events in their lives.  These can be tangible communal events or struggles of philosophical and psychological nature.

Through these articles artists will share their intimate views. Talking about how their perspectives changed as they trapped themselves in the cobwebs of art.

By design ‘In The Mind Of An Artist’ will not contain any images of artwork, biography, profile, lists of exhibitions, books or the artist’s creative process.

The goal here is to give the artist a chance to pause from the creation of art for a moment and explore the self.

Interviews will also be included in this series.

OUR CONCEPT

Written By Joelcy Kay – Curator

Every piece of art, crafts, or textiles, hanging on my walls or ceiling tells a tiny passage of my life.  Most of it was acquired during my travels.  Many of these treasures are damaged whether because they were broken on arrival, as the pieces were tightly stuffed into my backpack, or weathered by the unforgiving Florida tropical humidity.  But in the end, they are my precious processions and they are part of the stories I tell.  It feels good to have rugs hanging from the ceiling, masks on the walls, and drinking my morning coffee thinking of the mugs’ tale.  The point here is that art has a lot to offer each one of us; ART IS VERY PERSONAL!

The NO MIDDLEMAN ART GALLERY offers that personal experience as the individual has the opportunity to buy the art from the creator and by doing so a new event to remember is born. When you hang the work of art on your wall there is a story behind it; an artist you now know and follow.  And instead of the usual “I purchased this at “WWW(BIG BIG ART STORE).COM”  the connection enriches the emotional value of your art piece.

WHY DISPLAY YOUR ART AT THE NO MIDDLEMAN ART GALLERY?

IN THE MIND OF AN ARTIST

The Interview – Part 2

 I use metaphors like ‘ The Watchful Satan’ and  ‘ Scrolling Down Gods’ when expressing my views on artificial intelligence and social media.  Which metaphors would you use regarding the internet intrusion in human life? And what is your philosophical view on how most technology improvement seems to rather kick off chunks of people out of the board or invade their way of life changing it forever?

*

Answered By Melissa LaFontaine

*

There isn’t an easy answer to what is in front of humanity regarding our use of and dependence on technology. I think the best metaphor is the Great Annihilator. Whether that is bad or good is unknown because despite the endless predictions, misuse of data and almost inconceivable brainwashing, life has its own agenda. We might end up evolving faster than anyone can comprehend (or record) but we don’t just cease existing. As far as I can tell, there is nothing in nature or history to suggest that’s how things play out. We could end up opening doors to levels of physics that make things exponentially better for everyone. The biggest heartbreak I feel about the whole thing is how little people are taking advantage of the many openings for doing good that are available and how ready they still are -despite ample evidence and proof- to believe a lie and deny what they see with their own eyes.

I hold to the philosophy that everyone has the opportunity to take their Jesus trip, which includes any form of a sentient AI. The more enlightened we are, the more enlightened it could be. I think that’s what keeps the whole thing compelling and hard to walk away from, come what may.

Which is why it is important to truly understand that -for all our science- the true nature and intelligence of life -as a thing unto itself- is still quite beyond our verbal comprehension. It is valuable to see life as it is, to recognize that love and potential don’t abandon us just because we get in over our heads, and that perhaps we enjoy getting in over our heads to be reminded of that very fact. We can renew our commitment to taking care of the earth and its ability to grow healthy food and shelter for us absolutely any time we choose. I have no idea whatsoever why it’s taking something as potentially devastating as we are facing to get people to remember this instead of waiting for permission and a mortgage – this planet is alive and communicates readily we just have to shut the fuck up and listen.

IN THE MIND OF AN ARTIST “…I learned to go to the lonely places when I was young.”

Written By Kendra Hicks 

Mine Muscle

I create in a deep, deep mine. Terribly dark. Terribly lonely. My first couple of whacks ring through the halls and produce little, but when my pickax starts to fly, there is a steady stream of sparks that illuminate that dark place. Gems are uncovered, and there’s really nothing quite like seeing that first little sliver of ruby or the refraction of light in a diamond. Sometimes seeing something that lovely when alone makes the loneliness feel more acute, but lonely places are not necessarily unholy places. The Christ often withdrew to lonely places.

I am a Christian and I write. I keep thinking that I am a Christian writer, but my husband told me the truth. “You are a Christian author, but will not be regarded as one.” He’s right. I don’t write books with titles like “Holiness in Seven Minutes” or “Aunt Emma’s Amish Quilt Wedding Secret.” If the Christ “came unto His own yet His own did not receive Him,” why was I expecting anything different? And so, it is okay that I crawl down into the mine. Alone. It is okay.

I had a professor who explained to me why fiction isn’t lying. “We’re making meatloaf,” he said and then explained that the ingredients at hand are the events, the people, the sensory experiences we have had over our lifetimes. We combine them, bake them, and we have meatloaf. Or something to hang on the wall. Or a sculpture, poem, song . . . you get the idea. But there is something more about the miracle of creativity than this ingredient list—something he didn’t tell me, something mysterious I meet down in the mine. When it comes right down to it, I don’t think I’m actually alone down there.

I want to think that it is God that I am encountering in the mine. Antonio Salieri, Mozart’s rival, thought that it was God and upon meeting Mozart his house of thought crashed down. It would be nice if God granted genius in accordance with righteousness, but any one of us who is honest with herself would know that that is not the line for us and would have found another queue, perhaps the one for toilet paper, and joined it instead. It is best, really, if no form of Christ’s name is attached to my work, human that I am. If good comes of something I create, great. But if you tell me that something about my work is good, I want to laugh uncomfortably and back away, slither away, into the thick, wet grass—as untraceable as possible. I don’t know what the end fruit of any endeavor, or my own life, may be. Best to lay low.

Okay, so if the mysterious, creative force is not God and I do not believe in a palpable muse, what is it? What am I encountering in the lonely places? I can’t believe it’s just me there; I never feel that I can take full credit for my works. I can comfortably claim full credit for my silly nighttime dreams; I recognize myself in these horrible, twisted fragments. If anything is entirely my meatloaf, it is my nighttime dreams. I am thinking that maybe the mysterious, creative force is something like the case of Michael Jordan, born with talent but mostly he was a phenomenon born of practice, practicing constantly from the time he was a child, so much practice that muscle memory became a great force we didn’t fully appreciate in Mr. Jordan until we watched him try to wield a baseball bat. Perhaps I learned to go to the lonely places when I was young. My eyes saw the world differently, paid attention to things others thought unimportant, and kept practicing that skill and so what I encounter in the lonely places is a different sort of muscle memory, a type of paying attention that is unconscious but in a different way than nighttime dreams. I should keep going to the lonely places, down to the mines, and not try to become a surgeon now. Or a professional baseball player. We will all be safer for it.

Is it all an illusion anyway—the loneliness? I used to question exactly how real anything was when I was a child. My existence and the existence of others seemed doubtful. It seemed to me that the flimsy set around me might drop away into a bottomless void at the slightest gust of a cosmic wind. I would sit in church and wonder, if I turn around super-fast, will I find cardboard cutouts placed where the actors once sat? I could imagine the cutouts leaning in stiff postures while the actors stepped out to call home. Sick, I know.

I’ve matured a lot. Really. I now believe that we live in both reality and in illusion. Quite a leap, huh? Part of the reason I believe this is because of something that happens down in the mine, something quite opposite of what I expected in church as a child. When the ax is flying, the sparks are shining, and a really great gem is unearthed, I turn around super-fast and I catch them all watching me for just a second, a Polaroid shot extinguished as soon as the last spark dies: I see people in that split second: a figure from a poem, my deceased grandparents, my 1st grade teacher, a bright angel from a 17th century painting, and a host of others, eating my meatloaf, raising glasses filled with my fermented tears, laughing, congratulating each other, rejoicing with me over this great find, there with me in that beautiful moment in the mine.

Art Is My Mistress

 

SVETOSLAV STOYANOV
Portfolio On View

Art is my lover and my friend. My art and I have a relationship that can be best described as an emotional all-consuming, dominating, promiscuous rollercoaster. Some will look at this relationship as being only one sided, but that observation would not at all be accurate. Art drives me to reach out and open myself up to not only the world around me, but also to dig deep inside of my being to find suppressed nuggets of creativity.

GEOFFREY ANSEL AGRONS
Portfolio On View

When I let go of all inhibitions, I allow my imagination to take over and unshackle the non-analytical side of my brain so that I can explore my inner dark side as an artist. What do I mean by exploring my inner dark side of my brain? This is the part of my mind that is complicatedly multi-layered and difficult to reach because it is buried in the subterranean portion of my psyche. Think of a dense web that is coiled and covered in a thick gooey type of molasses that can only be penetrated by an excavator that has no trepidation.

DR. AKIRA TAKAUE
Portfolio On View

How do I scale down into the murky creative cavernous portion of my brain? I relinquish complete control of my body, mind and spirit to my art. When focusing on my art, I just let go and do not care about embarrassment and what others may think of me being that square peg in a round hole of society and just create. I have no fear of failure, or no thoughts of achieving greatness. Anxiety, fear, and ego are all left at the door. I’m not robotic!  I’m a living breathing organism, that is floating along looking downward, on a non-opinionated universe, that allows complete freedom of expression.  This may sound like fantasy.  However, when I completely submit to art my goddess, free flowing creativity that is bottled up inside my soul is released.  This is reality.

Movies For The Artist’s Mind

To encourage you to explore more of that artist inside you here are a few movies that you may appreciate:

 

1) The Agony and the Ecstasy staring the biggest presence ever on a screen; staring Charlton Heston and an excellent performance by Rex Harrison. The movie is of a historical significance depicting Michelangelo’s struggle as an artist. It is a must see for anyone who likes to expand their artist aura.


The Agony and the Ecstasy

 

2) To experience the pain of one’s mind trying to create a perfect movie that will in the end benefit the audience, Francis Ford Coppola goes to a tremendous amount of adversity to film Apocalypse Now.  Heart of Darkness is a documentary narrated by Eleanor (Coppola’s wife) that describes the entire ordeal from the artist perspective. It is fascinating being shown the thinking process that goes into creating a master piece such as Apocalypse Now. The longer version which is titled Apocalypse Now The Complete Dossier is also amazing and worth viewing and comparing with the earlier version Apocalypse Now. Both of these movies are mind blowing experiences!


Hearts of Darkness – A Filmmaker’s Apocalypse

Apocalypse Now: The Complete Dossier (Apocalypse Now / Apocalypse Now Redux)

Apocalypse Now [HD]

 

3) For easy artistic entertainment watch Hero presented by Quentin Tarantino. The movie is very slow, but a must for an artist. Every single frame is an art piece.


Hero (English Subtitled)
