An Artist Reflecting Culture

Our artistry is the great mirror that we as a culture hold up to understand who we are, where we are, and if we are headed in the right direction.  In order for art to do its job, the reflection must be clear.  As an artist reflecting culture, if you are using yourself as the medium of expression, you too must be clear.  There can be no part of unexamined ego distorting the image.  If you are to reflect a clear picture, there cannot be any of your depiction that includes your own needs, fear of loss or considered action, unless it completely aligns with the persona you portray. ~ Excerpt from the upcoming book, The Alexander Method: Transformational Acting for The Total Actor
