How we see art

Street Photography

I believe there is human soul displayed in every form of art. I have not very often thought about “what am I really doing here?” but as I think about it now, my answer might be “I’m displaying myself in written and/or physical form.” In my poetry, I’m literally spreading my soul across a sheet of paper. In photography I feel as though I’m desperately trying to find a connection to the expression of others. And oh, what a sublime feeling when I succeed.

A scene, a soul, and an expression. I'm an artist based in Detroit, but focus globally #worldiction #art #detroit #scottmitchell

    • Thanks Wendy! My soul feels quite involved with everything I do. I don’t know if I’m finding it, expressing it, or fighting with it hahaha. But, I’m feeling it!

  1. This is a perfect summary of art, Scott, along with an awesome photo. I especially love your perception for writing poetry “spreading my soul across a sheet of paper.”

    Exactly what I’ve been saying about artistry and how it’s expressed. Nowadays, many people have seen it as an opportunity they ought to grab to put a few coins in their pockets, but there’s more to that… A whole lot more, that is why they don’t thrive in the selected crafts because the essence has been misplaced.
    On the other hand, those who understand and master their craft and in turn demonstrate on paper, canvas, stage, they effortlessly stand out.

    I love this. It’s beautiful.

  3. I love this post, Its so true. After all we are people before we are artists so our experiences and personalities come out in our work, our subconscious seeps out through our creativity

  4. I like to believe this as well. All creations of every artist have touched the soul of their creators. So yes, creating any type of art means displaying a tiny bit of one’s soul, leaving it behind long after were gone as a way of proving our existence. No matter what you do and what you create, all art is precious and has a meaning. Otherwise why would anyone bother to put their limited time into creating art?!

    Great post. Interesting blog.

    Be well,
    prospermind. 🙂
