The question is …

How can artists turn pain into art?

Being an artist is to use sorrow, the deeps that might never have evolved in the normal light of day. It´s a minor symbol for something that cannot be expressed.

As an artist, the question becomes, what can you turn it into, what are the alchemical uses of sorrow, how do you transmute pain, what luminescence can you find in the deeps that might never have evolved in the normal light of day.
