The Brass Tacks

As an artist, there is always struggle between the making of work and the selling/marketing of product. Authenticity, knowing yourself, feeding your business and flourishing as an entrepreneur are all vital elements that must dovetail and revitalize the concerted energies of the artist.


The Artist

“Art is the lie that enables us to realize the truth. ”
-Pablo Picasso

The artist is the individual who brings spiritual concepts into the physical realm.
Aesthetics, honesty, integrity, love, truth, beauty are all qualities which are
communicated through music, paint, sculpture, performance, word, and a
thousand other possibilities.
By nature these concepts cannot be defined in physical terms (few doubt the existence
of love, but the infinite interpretations of it reveals little agreement and no precise
statement of its meaning).
Thus, the individual artist charges himself with creating, communicating, and delivering his
art and inspiring us all in discovering our truth.

Uncommon Sense Dynamically Executed

The artist extends a vision of remarkable worlds beyond the current miseries of misspent lives.
Frequently, lesser minds have sought to marginalize genius or redirect it for their own benefit.
But without keen insight into human understanding, even the most brilliant artists have fallen prey to distraction and tragic ends.
Artists are the keystone to the survival of all civilizations, lighting the torches within each of us
toward a better world.
Artists Solutions is a vital resource in arming all artists with critical tools so they may continue to dream the dreams upon which the world depends.
