Prelude to an Artists Life

c.Richard Ozanne 2009-13

Amidst the hustle and bustle of life, the functional business dogmatic, and the precedence of the casual, as well as the formal, there is a place for art.

I’m not sure where this place is however, for a place called art, other than the artists studio, the heart of the artist and in the Creator’s heart.
In the current age, our core values have changed. This age augments an essence that is deemed to be very practical, less malleable, and a growing unification of that essence.

Certainly this creates certain and sometimes grave  fears for the future.

This is the era of vastly changing politics, that base themselves in old adages, and not in new ideas have a perspective to this age in particular.
It is not art, but pragmatics that are driving this age, surely a change of ages, and times is very apparent in this aspect of the age we now live, but not necessarily the age which the artist gazes at dreams, wishing in contempt, that there should be more dreams and less talk, more art and less political drama during this period in which this novel is written.

That I live to see this particular age, sometimes bewildered, and sometimes confused, is in some aspects a miracle. That I can write on this age, of what I have seen, and experienced is still a miracle, freedom of thought still not chained or incarcerated, freedom of speech for all its worth..still allowed.

The artist sees many things, has to have many hats and still maintain, live and wok beauty. Art is alive and flowing, many will criticize. But this art, being what it may, in the time that it is made, has the basic essence of life.

This is another sketch of many pages...
