Expressing One’s Soul in Art

Artistic creation is a process of expressing one’s soul. Creating artists expose their souls, performing artists mold their souls to express the souls of others… Performing your own art live is the apex of both, aptly expressed by Laura Marling: “When I play, I am very much in the space where I was when I wrote the music. You could slay me quite easily, I’m at my most vulnerable. (…) why is it that I get up on stage every night and open myself in front of strangers?”
