Let Your God Self Be Seen!

September 17, 2012

Tuning in to your proper frequency and discovering who you really are takes time and patience.  As an artist, development is a major part of the process.  My father would always spit game, one of the realest things he would say was, “Be a student of the game!”  In other words, be a student of your craft!  As you continue on your mission, you realize how true that statement is.  The lessons add up, which forces you to study, next thing you know, you are a master of your craft.  Although we are all students for life, learning is forever, because the mind is infinite.

For artists, the connection to God is obvious, “God created.”  We are products of God’s creation, which means the gift is not to be taken for granted.  What is your purpose as an artist?  What are you talking about and who are you talking to?  Art is psychology.  Looking at an artist’s body of work reveals who the artist is and what the artist represents.  Being true to yourself is imperative for an artist.  Composing work based on your own experiences and allowing people to see and share your thoughts.  Always inviting dialogue and critique for growth, especially among colleagues and elder master teachers.  Not allowing an unbalanced system to dictate the composition of your work.  Forever carrying torches down dark tunnels, being the light!  Let your God self be seen.  Stay true to the game.  Paul Gaugin said, “art is either plagiarism  or revolution.”  Plagiarism for artist who can and revolution for artists that do!

Peace
