On life drawing...
“Part of what makes drawing from life so interesting is the tension of constantly overcoming one's blind, preconditioned outlooks on the physical world, working to see it honestly and objectively. This tension between objectivity and bias has been with us from our evolutionary beginnings, as we continue to mature out of incomplete understandings of the natural world. Life drawing hones this discipline of objectivity; to understand and accurately translate the natural world, rather than distort and impose upon it through preconditioned bias, as we do across the world today on the societal level, in old systems and traditions."
