Honesty, O’ the honesty of making Art

There’s something so honest about creating art. It’s not a particular art form, nor the quality of the artist, but rather the act of engaging in soul search. Creating and/or remixing the images, the words, sounds, and feelings bound inside the soul of a man, is a heroic act. There is an honesty found in the act of creating art that chastened the hearts of those engaged in it. The baring of deep dark secrets and the cathartic release of emotions previously unconfronted can make a normal man turn strange, and that is the moment of courageous and valiant repose that we artist look for. This search is truly a lifelong journey and one that is hard to put into words. Next time, ask a musician, a dancer, painter, actor, etc. to explain this urge to be free. This honesty allows many to be free, FREE of all sorts of hang ups and twisted knots found in the very being of us all. That is all….

Sincerely,
Jarritt Ahmed Sheel
