A Generous Spirit: Exploring New Directions for the Arts

Sarah Zoutewelle-Morris, Keri Smith

All artists hit roadblocks on their creative paths and in A Generous Spirit artist Sarah Zoutewelle-Morris tells stories of how we might overcome them. Trained as an artist, designer and calligrapher, Sarah begins by telling the story of building her own career on the ‘art as a product’ route until she became disillusioned with that model and sought to expand her creative work in the world. She came to realize that art is not just products or a vocation but a vehicle for healing, transformation and community-building. This beautifully illustrated book maps how several contemporary artists have stepped outside the boundaries of the studio, untethered by the emphasis on money, to re-awaken their original function as the intermediary between sacred realms and the emerging everyday world. Inspired by their innovative work, Sarah changed her own direction to bring creative projects into therapeutic environments. Artists can play a visionary role in renewal, offering fresh images to light up our imagination and alternatives to how to live on our planet. Sarah discusses many ways to bring artistic values, beauty, imagination and creative skills into the world. Finding links between art and the natural, wild and sacred realms, Sarah elucidates how art can be a path to transformation which can awaken our generous spirit. The book includes a preface by Canadian artist Keri Smith, author of Wreck This Journal.
