An Artist’s Book of Inspiration: A Collection of Thoughts on Art, Artists, and Creativity
Fitzgerald, Astrid (Ed.).
|This is a compendium of quotations on art, artistic expression, and creativity. It is of value to EHEers in two ways. First, reading these inspired and inspiring quotations can spark recollections of one’s own moments of creative insight and inspiration, and help to potentiate one’s EHEs. Some of the quotations may trigger EHEs in themselves in the act of reading. Thus, the book is relevant to two forms of exceptional human experience: the creative insight and the literary experience. If you are involved in writing about your EHEs or are in an artistic activity, or project of transcendence, then reading some of the passages in this book should get you into the frame of mind you need to do your best work. The book can provide starting points for meditation also. One of the quotations I opened to randomly is Harold Rosenberg’s "Today, each artist must undertake to invent himself, a life-long act of creation." The same, with the addition of herself, could be said of the process of honoring our exceptional experiences.|
