I Think I do
Whether someone accepts or rejects any theory of the mind, one must add the divine self to a list of psychological constructs in this inner world where you are host to a myriad of forces that no one can fully explain.
It is, after all, art from the unconscious that flows from a cornucopia of intuitive emotion. If you make art from thinking, then you have to calculate by design.
If you create art from intuition, which depends upon the flow of pure intelligent emotion, the work is direct and instantaneous, and you don’t have to plan it.
This is, of course, how Picasso and other prolific creators produced large bodies of work. I’m not referring to the manufacture of lithographs or recycled copies of photographs of famous people. I am speaking about original works of art, things that have never been in this world before—art that contributes to reality.
This is where I want to be.»
