I love your responses in English. You sound like a poet
I've heard in Tibet there is no artwork that is not religiously motivated. I think that's sad, in a way. So I think that you, who come from a completely different world, could bring an astonishingly fresh approach to thangkas
I believe very strongly that spirituality cannot be forced upon a person.
I think that religion was the foundation of art in all corners of the world. Russia is no exception, but times have changed and now there is no common reference point - we are free to choose their own "gods". One of the Russian philosophers said that after the death of the artist lives in a world of his paintings. Therefore, creativity, as the power of creating worlds, to be spiritual rather than a means of making money. I am close to this concept))) I hope that I will use their abilities correctly)) ______________ I clearly wrote? Or, again, mixed up all the words?
But to fully immerse oneself in one's art, it must be a full-time activity. So, the artist, most of the time, must make money from his/her art.
Yes, I know, those who make money from their art often lose their vision, chasing after others visions. But the religious who are compelled to create artwork in one specific style also lose their vision. This is probably the goal of the religious institutions.
I'm not a very good artist but I know my art is 100% me
