A Change Of Mind
I try to get out and see what is going on in the world of art, music, theater, etc. in order to share what I find with people and open their eyes, hopefully, to something they had never experienced before. I consider art to be a spiritual act, a devotional to God through words, music, or visual art, a way to try and explain the things that we wrestle with. Whenever I hear someone tell me someone is trying to explain themselves, or try to shaie their feelings, I shudder. Can you shoot any lower? Most true artists I know do it not as a way to share their feelings, but as a compulsion, trying to wrestle the demons who followed them around their entire lives. Dare I say it is an indwelling of the Holy Spirit? How else can you explain the Psalms? Twisted Soda is one such artist. I was never one to go for collage art. It never appealed to me. I've changed my mind. Her work mixes media like I mix ingredients to make soup. At the time I may not understand it entirely, but I sure can enjoy the result. I'd like to thank her for giving me permission to post a few pieces of her work.
There are a few days left to send in your guest blogs for the assignment.
