“Art is not a reflection of reality, it is the reality of a reflection.” – Jean-Luc Godard
Jean-Luc Godard is a great filmmaker, who explores various themes through his art, striving to prove that art is indeed the reality of a reflection. The way we see things, our own perception. The same applies to our lives. They are the reality of an artist’s inspiration and work. You can see that these two worlds are not always cohesive in how they come together, but that doesn’t make them any less real.
As an artist, you are bound to capture the reality in your mind and create something that reflects it. A songwriter hears lyrics or melodies in their head and puts them on paper or records them for people to hear. Those melodies and lyrics create an emotional response for someone who listens to them.
Creative people can become inspired by anything – from their relationships with others to everyday events and simple things they come across in their day-to-day lives. These experiences can help them to deepen their understanding of what they want to say or express through their art.
The life of an artist can be hard. There are many ups and downs throughout their journey, but what makes it worth it at the end is the art they create on their way up and down. They reflect on their struggles in this world through their art and give back to us all with a new perspective on life.
But this is not limited to artists only. It also applies to all those who create things in life – such as entrepreneurs, writers, teachers and parents – who all have the ability to inspire those around them through their passion and creativity. Ultimately, art is not just a representation of our lives – it is the reality of a reflection that we live every day.
