My art-making has become extremely contemplative and extremely curious. It is decision-making as most important: big versus small, open versus closed, me versus the rest of mankind. In writing that last sentence I am admitting to my gigantic quandary: What is my personal relevance? Communication between you and I happens in all sorts of ways. I am involved in art-making as multi-layer communication between you and I.
I had an intensive dream last night; it is relevant to my quandary. In my dream I became a teacher of Art. I have done that before. I never felt I was a successful Art Teacher. I was unable, or not allowed, to tell my deepest ideas. I never taught art-making as quest for personal authenticity. Instead I taught Art-Making as quest for superior technique and the understanding of the principles and the elements of art and design. I believe my dream is the beginning of a new teaching career. I wrote down my ideas, as Course Curriculum, this morning. This could be the beginning of something great!
