Live Blog: Linnea – Freedom through Limits // The Artist as Communicator

Note: These questions and answers will not be directly transcripted word-for-word but more idea-for-idea.

Linnea: “Part of the artist’s job is to keep you alert.”

Another job an artist has is to communicate. That doesn’t mean we have to communicate to everyone. In attempting to communicate, it is incumbent on artists that we do our best to do so.

I feel like I always have to say this:

Art that truly does matter is a manifestation of the inner meditation of the heart and mind of the artist.

That’s why you don’t have to do paintings of Jesus on the cross at all times. When you are committed to him, all of your life is saturated with it, and to search your inner self you can see something new and real: you can literally smell the Kingdom of God. Once communicated, people will either love it or hate it.
