I needed colour.
Today, I watched Jim Carrey at work. Actually, at play, might be a better word. Not as an actor. As an artist.
While we’re not all artists, we’re all creators.
I wanted to share this six-minute video with you, in which Jim shares these gems about creating in the world:
“It’s kinda cool what happens with these things, you know? Cause you really don’t know what a sculpture or a painting totally means. You think you do. Most of the time I start out with a plan and then like a year later I’ll realize that the painting was telling me what I needed to know about myself a year before.”
“I like the independence of it. Love the freedom of it. No one else tells you what you can or can’t do… most of the time. And there’s an immediacy to it. Art has to be serviced. It’s like your servicing your subconscious and at the same time you’re doing something that someone else is going to relate to.”
“That’s pretty. So funny, I get so stuck on when I try and choose colours and when I just grab them it’s cool.”
“I don’t know what painting teaches me. I know that it just frees me. Free from the future, free from the past, free from regret, free from worry.”
“The bottom line with all of this…. is love… We want to show ourselves and have that be accepted.
“I love being alive and the art is evidence of that.”
Don’t we all need colour? I know I do.
