The Artistic Process

“All art is exorcism.”

“All art is exorcism.” – Otto Dix

I’ve always wanted to start a blog, but I never knew exactly what I should write about, whether people would find it interesting, and if I could even find the voice inside of me to do it. Although, today I stopped worrying. I sat down with pot of tea and decided that today would be the day. And here I am. Writing.

The quote above is from Otto Dix who was a German painter and soldier in the First World War who drew inspiration for his artwork from his wartime experiences. I love this quote because I feel that it captures the true essence of the artistic process. We write, we paint, we sing, we create because we have something inside of us that needs to come out.
