"Artists have two responsibilities.  The first is to express themselves.  The second is to communicate." - Audrey Flack, Art & Soul

I am still deeply reading the book "Creative Authenticity" by Ian Roberts and am enjoying the chapter on Communication.  As a person, I feel my skill of Communication could be improved upon, I think many of us probably feel the same way, but as the author speaks about communication I can see what an important part it plays in art.
It is true.  When I am painting a picture I am trying to portray a feeling or sense of time or space or place to both myself and the viewer.  I feel something usually about a time or place and want to express that via my artwork.  Because my work is a bit abstract that leaves more interpretation open to the viewer which ultimately, in my opinion, is the best connection an artist can have with the viewer, an open communication.
I also feel that this communication of art between the artist and viewer should be authentic.  It should be deeply felt by the artist.  That is what makes true art and a real artist.  Real art is more than learning how to paint a pretty picture or throw a perfect pot.  Real art comes from a space deep within.  That space is opened up and usually poured into an artists work.  Showing up for years and decades on a daily basis is what makes art and the artist authentic.  I hope you enjoy my art, it comes from a deep authentic artist.
