Book Reading: The Adjacent Possible: Evolve Your Art. From Blank Canvas To Prolific Artist
The Adjacent Possible book is about the art and science of the possible- evolving your art, cultivating your fullest self-expression and getting to the elusive deepest work your heart yearns to create.
Quieting the inner critic, being able to take big risks, make mistakes and continually experiment- this is how you innovate.
Feel released and liberated to not only create, but embrace “ugly” art. This is how novel things emerge- they don’t come from the known but from the unknown.
The Adjacent Possible is about bringing visibility to the invisible, shining light around corners, noticing what you’ll pursue from experimentation.
You have a dream but you don’t know how to bring it to life. It has lain fallow for years, like a dormant seed, sleepy in the cold earth, waiting for sustenance. waiting for you to bring it alive.
Being an artist is about continually evolving your art. It’s about cultivating your fullest self-expression and getting to the elusive deepest work your heart yearns to create.
Learn the science of creativity, the adjacent possible
This is a revolutionary method influenced by groundbreaking research in biology and physics to guide you to embrace the unfolding of your art.
Every brushstroke, every decision in your art, creates a set of possible paths that were not only invisible before, but didn’t exist before you made that creative move. This is the adjacent possible.
This book will:
- guide you to evolve your art
nudge you to create art that excites, scares and wows you
inspire you to move past emulating not only others, but yourself in your art
Becoming a great artist is about the movement of coming closer to who you are and reaching the fullest expression of YOU in your art.
With one foot in the known and one foot in the unknown, you’ll become aware of your creative edge where the adjacent possible lives.
At the pivot point between creation and collapse, you’ll experience a state of poised instability. This is the art and science of the possible- a world of continuous creation.
