The Artist exists because an
artist has the ability through work to fade into a film, a play, a book, a
poem, or a dance. Musical artists know the same comfort of dipping into their
imaginations as well. How many times do
we all watch the same movies over and over again? Television shows? We listen
to the same music for the same reasons that we go to museums and galleries and
look at and collect the same artists: comfort and peace. Being a sports spectator
happens for similar reasons.
The childhood desire to grow
up to be a firefighter, a policeman, a ball player in professional sports, a
princess, or any number of superheroes as a child or to be able to emulate our
parents as grownups, is why as we age we make choices that ease the pain of
life’s wounds, to heal our hearts and souls, give us comfort, and strengthen
our backbones in order to be able to face life’s challenges.
Becoming a part in a film,
working in film production, as well as having the ability to run away into art,
is, actually the road back home.
