The question is not so much why people make art but why some people don’t. From a very early age, we begin trying to shape materials in our environment into artistic creations. This effort usually continues unless it is stifled by those who try to teach us the “right”way to make art or those who insist that we color within the lines of somebody else’s drawing. We may compare our creations unfavorably with more skillful works and give up our attempts at making art.

其实真正的疑问不是为什么要创作艺术,而是为什么有些人不去做。从很小开始我们就尝试将身边材料塑造成艺术性作品。这种努力一般会发展下去直到我们受到外来干扰,包括也许有人试图教我们用“正确”的方式创作,或者坚持让我们遵循他人的条条框框。我们也可能将自己的作品和技巧更高的作品做不利的比较,气馁而放弃艺术创作。

 

Training and practice are usually necessary to make the hands create what the mind can imagine. In many cases, the creations of a work of art is meticulously planned and executed. But there may also be an element of spontaneity and serendipity in some kinds of artistic expression.

要使双手创造出心中所想的效果,训练和练习确实是非常必要的。很多情况下,创作一幅作品需要精心计划和细致执行。但在有些艺术表达形式中,随意而为和意外灵光也是重要元素。

 

Creating something new requires a certain originality of thought. To create is to develop something from ones imagination, bringing something into being which would not evolve in the natural course of things.

艺术创作需要一定程度的原创思想。创造力源自于想象力,是将原本不会自然产生的事物变成一种存在。


This imagination has deep wellsprings which may lie beneath conscious thought. When some artists are working they may enter a state of intense concentration in which they may fail to notice the passage of time or the stiffness of their bodies. In this meditation-like altered state of consciousness, visual ideas may evolve without intellectual struggle, once a foundation of skills and design sensitivities has been developed. The chance to experience this direct communion with a deeper level of reality is at least part of the urge to create—and it invites others to share in the experience.

这种想象力有着深刻的渊源,甚至不被我们意识所察。有些艺术家在创作时会进入注意力高度集中的状态,以至于忘记时间流逝或者感觉不到身体的僵硬。在这种类似冥想的非常态意识状态下,只要艺术家已经拥有技巧和设计敏感度的良好基础,那么无需经过思索挣扎,图形创意就会自由发展。能够体验与深层存在的直接对接,这至少是艺术家创作动力之一——而且观者可有机会融入这种体验
