If you are an artist or just wish you were more like one, it might be helpful to realize or know what you actually “do” when you make your art. Some artists are prompted by their visions inspired by idea generators like music, poetry, vignettes of nature, or a theme. Club Creative Studio’s blog today has a focus on the letter “V” and that stands for vision.
What does an artist do to gain that vision that inspiration to create?
To understand the vision of an artist, you can appreciate knowing what an artist actually does. What do artists do?
Artists remember. They envision a meaning. They symbolize the connections of objects and meanings.
Artists create. They take art material and transform it into something.
Artists imagine. They use their brain to imagine a person, animal. place, or thing.
Artists use their imagination to invent. They think up something that is original or an improvement on something else.
An artist has feelings about what they observe.
Artists distort. They take and use a fragment of their visions or thoughts.
Artist often metamorphosize. They take an idea, person, or an object and make them alive or not alive, or a different space or time.
Artists experiment. They play. They hybridise art, taking two different things or two different ideas and place them together.
An artist often repeats actions. They take freedoms to take an object or a design and repeat it over and over.
An artist is comfortable to fantasize. They use their imagination but, add something really unrealistic or unusual without fears.
An artist will plan. They will investigate their process and technique.
Finally, and artist may analyze. They will redo something you have done before but, make it better by rethinking it.
Artists ideas and visions have always dealt with birth, love, death,beliefs, rituals, history, heredity and what it means to them to be human. It is hard to change those themes but, not hard to change society, technology, controversies. Artists have visions and they strive to not stifle their ideas.
