There is no denying that the pace of life is getting faster, the focus of truth is scattered wider and wider, news sources are no longer reliable, and debunking once-sacred beliefs has become the recreational activity of anyone with an internet connection. Yesterday's "super-food" is today's toxin. Even the planet is protesting as we spiral toward the inevitable. It's no wonder that anxiety levels are skyrocketing. How do we cope? Artists, as society's canaries in the coalmine, digest and reflect what is happening in the world around them. Do they create in reaction to anxiety? Are they inspired by anxiety? Does the act of creation bring relief? Art making can be a therapeutic avenue by which we artist are able, if we choose, to transform the anxiety into a form of relief. The word "art" itself provides us a very useful acronym: Acess, Release, Transform. How do you transform anxiety into relief???
