"There is a way that nature speaks, that land speaks.  Most of the time we are simply not patient enough, quiet enough, to pay attention to the story." ~Linda Hogan

Art and Freedom

There are many types of freedoms in life and art.  Regarding the freedoms in art, each Art field seems to generate, or have, its own particular freedoms.  Granted, there is variation among artists as to which freedoms one may get from a given art, but generally speaking, dancing tends to generate freedom of movement; music tends to generate freedom of emotional expression; poetry tends to generate the freedom of communicate through language and sound.

The freedom I experience when taking digital photos includes freedom of movement because I can walk, run, wonder and move about freely, especially when shooting outdoor nature subjects, such as trees.  Also, the nature of digital cameras gives accessibility to subjects.  At the same time, the freedom I experience through painting includes freedom of expression, freedom of spirit, freedom of mind and also freedom for my eyes and hands (wrist and arm too).

For me, there is a least one common freedom, which I find present in both photography and painting.  The freedom of communicate and express myself through a visual means.  There is a great joy in taking a subject and  reproducing it in a balanced or intended way.  When one has the ability to communicate what one wants to express in an art, then one will know a great and precious freedom. ~GH, 6/25/09
