Authenticity & The Creative Practice

 


QUESTIONS FOR REFLECTION

  • What does the word authentic mean to you, in terms of your art? What parts of your practice feel most authentic?

  • What parts of your practice don’t feel authentic? Are any of your choices guided by what you feel you “should” do? What parts of your practice are you talking yourself into?

  • Which of your images feels most like you - the real you?

  • How could you make your work even more authentic? If making authentic work was your primary goal, how would your process be different?
