When Ingenuity Speaks
This afternoon I spent three hours at SAW Gallery with about 50 fellow artists who were hanging onto every word of Montréal-based, internationally-acclaimed photographer and video artist Adad Hannah. We were looking for answers. How do you manage all those ideas floating around your head? Is there REALLY a recipe for home/creation balance? How does one manage a successful and efficient studio without any formal business training? Even if there aren't any concrete answers to such daunting and demanding inquiries (especially when applied to the arts!), we did get a glimpse into the natural complexities and challenges an artist faces while following his (or her) true path. In essence, the busy-ness of living, creating, interacting, absorbing can surpass your expectations when given a brief moment to reflect on those extra-sensory, sometimes inexplicable, experiences.
