My guest today is a free spirit and a fantastic sculptor named Barbara Jo Borch. Barbara’s artwork deals with the connections and contrasts between nature and mankind. As she creates, she plays with the ideas of natural versus rational and spontaneous versus intellectual, which she also demonstrates in her proces. Barbara begins with a concept in mind, but allows the materials to take unplanned courses as it unfolds, surprising even the artist. Our conversation felt very similar, I didn’t know everything I’d cover with Barbara Jo, but by the end, we’d weaved together a conversation I truly enjoyed. Barbara Jo may have a small voice, but for those willing to listen, she may help you see there is a better way to be happy. I hope you enjoy it as well.
In our conversation, we discussed freedom, art as a master, having something that drives you, the reason is myself (yourself), consistently producing art, motivation vs inspiration, art taking over, art doing what it wants, acknowledging how creation works, culture, every culture has a shelf life, being a small voice to help people see a different way, storyteller vs lead role, my condition, buddhism, looking but not seeing, and a sad, scary quote that reminds us nobody is coming.
