On life drawing...
“Drawing from life is interesting because of the familiar tension of constantly having to fight against one's own preconditioned outlooks on the world as opposed to seeing it fresh and honestly; objectively. This tension between objectivity and preconceived bias has been with us from the beginnings of our social evolution, as we slowly progress out of false assumptions of the natural world which continue to result in our own imbalance and conflict. Life drawing celebrates this discipline and pursuit to observe honestly; to properly connect and relate to, understand, and translate the natural world, rather than distort, impose upon it, or completely ignore it, as we do across the world today in old systems and traditions."
