The Art of ART.
‘The Art of Art’
Tony DeLorger © 2010
Art is the product of self-expression, contrived and undertaken by the artist. What art is, is purely subjective, a product of the imagination and skill of its visionary. Whether art is commercial, accepted, understood or judged wanting is purely a result of its subject matter, medium, quality of undertaking and marketability at the time of completion.
Appreciation for art is again subjective and personal, each critique a result of the beholders view of the world, experiences, ideas of beauty, appreciation of concept and meaning. Each one of us defines ourselves by how we individually perceive art and the world in general.
For the artist, art represents a passion of self-expression that is like a river flowing through their veins, a creative obsession that must find an outlet. It, like the air that we breathe, must exist for the artist to function in the real world. Without it, an artist feels incomplete, soulless and lost.
Often quoted as ‘artistic temperament, ‘ artists are sensitive to the finer and more subtle aspects of life, the senses heightened, and their awareness on the razor’s edge. Artist can be fragile, depressive, and changeable and often become loners because of their strange routines and working schedules. Their view of life is different to everybody else, with different priorities and goals dominated by the waves of creative expression that often imprison them until completion.
Creativity; from where it comes I do not know. All I know is that it must flow through me and find its way to this earthly realm. I do not know why, I just know that it is and will always be.

A creative talent if nurtured,
Aspires to become one with the endowed.
As a consequence, it is the most
Effortless and the most divine
Of all addictions.
The fruit of life itself.
