Creativity Within Constraints

I don’t know a creative person or organization that doesn’t have constraints or limitations.  Those barriers might be internal, such as time and money, or external such as those imposed upon us by the world in which we live.

About a week ago, I was reading an article in the art and design section of the paper on artists who have found new ways to see after losing their vision to macular degeneration.   Afterward, I reflected on other artists and how they, with their own physical limitations, still created new work.

When it is my turn, I hope that I can embrace the koan or riddle of the “Goose in the Bottle,” and like these creatives, continue to express my visual vocabulary and share it with the world.
