Tell the truth, but tell it slant.
– Emily Dickinson
Through not quite literal expression, the artist, the subject of the art, and the viewer are honored: The viewer is invited to come to their own interpretation, which allows for not just their own experience of the world but the possibilities of the subject's world as well. And for those who, like myself, tend to be outspoken and opinionated in other areas of life, a slant approach to creativity is freeing and opens access to different facets of communication.
