Stephen Gould Rose - visual artist
I have been turning to a more intuitive approach to art making. I sense a wealth of latent imagery that wants to be made visible, much more than I can imagine or "create." So, removing myself from the process seems most productive. It's certainly more fun than a willful approach. So, I listen... and hear images groaning to be born. I approach, and they take my hand. I disappear.

Rilke comments on this:

We are not permitted to linger, even with what is most
intimate. From images that are full, the spirit
plunges on to others that suddenly must be filled;
there are no lakes till eternity. Here,
falling is best. To fall from the mastered emotion
into the guessed-at, and onward.
-Rilke, To Hölderlin (1st stanza)
