Artist Statement
What is creativity? Is it a peculiar mental process? Is it an indigenous feeling or emotion. Can it be taught or learned in a classroom? Or is it personal choice, an acquired taste? Even though I am unable to ultimately categorize it, I am rather certain of what creativity is not as it pertains to the arts. Creativity does not dwell in paintings, sculptures, sketches, computers, video games, cell phones, automobiles, etc, as I once thought. I now believe that all inanimate objects are derivatives of our creative nature. Creativity cannot be contained, captured or managed within the confining parameters of physical forms and institutional protocols. God‘s grace has given creativity to us to be used to express our Love for one another. God’s purpose for creativity is to not reflect the carnal ambitions and temporal policies of this current physical world, but to reflect the eternal communion with God. This art exhibit is the result of my personal expedition towards creativity. I dedicate this particular exhibit to Mr. and Mrs. Lowell Jay Abbott of Colorado Springs, Colorado.
