What’s New At Create With Joy?
Clear Seeing Place – Studio Visits by Brian Rutenberg
Art brings us back into ourselves by making us unrecognizable to ourselves: we see through someone else’s eyes, which broadens our experience and gives us empathy.
Painting is the most empathetic art form because the view stands in the exact spot that the painter did as each skin of color was stacked over time…
Are you interested in living a more creative life? Are you a budding artist who would like a first-hand perspective of what it’s like to make a living creating art from a painter who has participated in over two hundred exhibitions throughout North America and Europe?
Then Clear Seeing Place: Studio Visits by Brian Rutenberg is essential reading for you!
Clear Seeing Place: Studio Visits explores the life and making of Brian Rutenberg – a Fulbright Scholar, New York Foundation for the Arts Fellow and Basil Alkazzi USA Award recipient who is considered to be one of the finest American painters of our generation! This book is packed with ideas, observations, techniques, and career advice that’s bound to inspire anyone interested in creativity.
Deemed a fascinating “love letter to painting by a painter”, Clear Seeing Place provides fresh insights into the art, poetry and people who have influenced the artist. Brian shares the thoughts that move through his head as he paints and creates, making us privy to his routines, rituals and passions.
You don’t have to be an artistto enjoy this book. If you are interested in creativity, art and culture, then Clear Seeing Place will also appeal to you!
