Living a courageous life

IMG_0932

“Unless a courageous stance to life is coupled with these ingredients [dexterity,knowledge, taste], tedious and shallow things will be made. Unless a capacity to dream and fantasize is there, derivative things will be made. Without an unflinching sense of self, the work will ring hollow and will remain unconvincing. Unless one wanders into territory that is perplexing, mysterious, overwhelming, the work will be pedestrian and predictable and so will we.”

— From “No More Secondhand Art: Awakening the Artist Within” by Peter London
