The Psychology and the Process of an Artistic Concept

Would you like to learn more about the creative process from a group of talented artists?

I have written several articles in the past on the creative personality, navigating relationships when both members of the couple are in similar artistic fields, and the motivation and perseverance it takes to follow their dreams in the art world despite the odds against them.

A topic that occurred to me that I think would be of great interest was the creative process.

What do various artists think and do to get inspiration, to take a concept from inspiration to a show?

What is their path like?

How do these unique talents and dynamic personalities go about the creative process from different directions but come to the same result of a finished, pleasing, and emotionally evocative piece?

In the second part of the two-part piece, I will focus on the one gallery Director and his views on the process and psychology of working with artists and of aiding them on their path.
