As we expand and deepen our conversation about art, we quickly come to wonder what might be liberated as we approach the idea of art itself as not a finished object but an evolving conversation. Where else can this pathway, this exploration, lead?
For many people, the great fascination with art is a desire to be liberated in some way from what may be a restrictive view about the nature of reality and the nature of consciousness. Art opens something else. Can art be a pathway or a bridge that allows a natural flow between an internal awareness and connection and the external expression?
In this conversation Aviv Shahar talks with Aud Wilken and Rita Lampen, two life-long artists, about their love of art, the source of their inspiration, and what is possible through a deeper awareness and appreciation of the true nature of living art.
I am getting through this the clearer sense that not only are we trying to discover art as a form of conversation, rather, it's a live conversation. A conversation through which life can appear; through which we can truly get the sense of what you described as intimacy with life. And when that happens, we know we are in the presence of something else.
