Art of Losing myself, on soft canvas, 2007.
Creativity is intimate because it is us most truly, spontaneously, and totally. It is also intimate because it is Spirit working through us in so profound a way that Eckhart says, God “becomes the space where” we want to act.
Creativity is not a noun or even a verb—it is place, a space, a gathering, a union, a where—wherein the Divine powers of creativity and the human power of imagination join forces. Where the two come together is where beauty and grace happen and, indeed, explode. Creativity constitutes the ultimate in intimacy, for it is the place where the Divine and the human are most destined to interact.
From Creativity, by Matthew Fox
“We reach for God in many ways. Through our pictures and our prayers. Through scriptures and sculptures. Through our writing and our worship. And through them He reaches us.”
