“Everybody has a secret world inside of them. I mean everybody. All of the people in the whole world, I mean everybody — no matter how dull and boring they are on the outside. Inside them they’ve all got unimaginable, magnificent, wonderful, stupid, amazing worlds… Not just one world. Hundreds of them. Thousands, maybe.”
― Neil Gaiman
My inner world cannot be perceived by others not the way that I can perceive it. Of course this tends to be true of everyone. Artists tho show glimpses into their interior world. The ability to do this despite the medium may serve as a definition or description for what makes an artist. The medium doesn’t matter much. If you can look at the product or work of another and catch a glimpse into their process and perhaps a greater understanding of your own, then you very likely stand in the presence of an artist.
