TEW V4.0 {foreword} written by Chicago artist, Craig A. Anderson

Mr. Anderson, my high-school art teacher taught us the ‘business of art’ – I will never forget it! I am so honored that he has written the forward for The Entrepreneur Within You volume 4 – the “creative” edition! (Release, June 2017) — JMH (Julie M. Holloway, TEW founder/author/curator)

Here is his statement of work:

I BELIEVE IN PERCEPTUAL PROCESS. A PROCESS THAT IS AN ON-GOING, SIMULTANEOUS, MULTI-LAYERED, MULTIDIMENSIONAL, EVER-CHANGING, ATTEMPT AT NORMALITY. THIS EXISTENTIAL-PHENOMENOLOGICAL AESTHETIC BALANCES A LINEAR-LATERAL APPROACH TO THINKING; A SUBJECTIVE DISCOVERY OF THE COMMONPLACE, THE ORDINARY, THE OBVIOUSNESS OF EXISTING; AND THE SIMPLE EXPRESSION OF TRUTH BY OVERLAPPING MARKS TO CREATE A SPACE ON A FLAT SURFACE. BY OVERLAPPING, A “PUSH-PULL” EFFECT IS CREATED. A POINT OF DEPARTURE, RATHER THAN A CONCLUSION. THIS INVITES PERCEPTUAL PARTICIPATION. THE PROCESS OF PERCEPTUAL “DIALECTICAL MATERIALISM” IS THE ESSENCE OF “NOWNESS” OR THE HIGHEST LEVEL OF TRUTH. I BELIEVE AND SUBSCRIBE TO GOTTLIEB & ROTHKO’S TENET, “WE FAVOR THE SIMPLE EXPRESSION OF COMPLEX THOUGHT.”

– Craig A. Anderson
