In honor of father’s day, today I asked my dad about his everyday superpower. He was wary about being interviewed, unsure he’d know what to say. I encouraged him to try and so glad he did. Though I’ve known him intimately and been a part of his life for well over three decades I learned something new about the way he sees the world. .
His superpower is his VISUAL AESTHETIC. He compares the way of ordering the world around him like a bonsai tree, cultivated, natural, slowly evolving into beauty. His art is in the forest ~ giving it visual order, crafting subtle shifts in the spaces in between to please the eye of the viewer. Some may call him anal, but the purpose of his attention to detail is to be soothing, to sound like the softness of treading on pine needles. .
Seeing the world through his eyes, makes me wonder less about why I am an artist.
