I really enjoyed this opinion piece about the intersection between music and art. I think it applies to all creative fields, really. That's why it's so fun (and pays off) to invest in a lot of different creative forms as an artist. Something in one field will trigger something in another, and so forth.
Two quotes I liked from her piece:
"Visual art is a roundabout, subconscious influence on my songwriting that is often a relief from words and music."
"Standing in the foundation of the museum looking at the dirt and rock made me think about why we make art, why we need art and how easy it is to forget about these questions when commerce is involved. I would like to tell you how this piece influenced my songwriting, but I think it is still shaping me… Working in a deep place under the learned foundations of this songwriter’s mind."
