I cannot live without expressing my inner feeling for beauty in a physical form. Another artist who was my father passed it on to me and I don’t want to bury it.
To me the highest form of art is the perception of beauty which makes it possible to be creative. Not necessarily in the form of a painting or another craft, but as in “being in tune with life” which can then be acted upon. So the result of that inner state expresses itself in all kinds of art. One can be a gardener or an engineer; a parent or an artist. Destruction is an indication of disconnection. Creation is caring and nurturing, and healing. In that state, violence is not. No strong political leaning, just true to one’s inner peace. To be right wing or left wing makes no sense. A true artist cannot bear destruction and violence in any form. When you create something out of nothing, it makes you happy and it gives joy to others too. Destruction does the exact opposite, so I choose happiness and joy in art.”
“I believe the ability to perceive beauty brings inner peace and clarity. Beauty, truth and goodness are one. Creation is possible when peace is attained within. When that happens, it can manifest itself without in various ways, including art. As John Updike said: The artist brings something into the world that did not exist before, and they do it without destroying anything else. The art that has been created does even more. It transforms everything around it with its energy. It heals.” Lena Owens
