The thesis offers a view: that the whole creative enterprise, or the process of creating, is about being free. It is practising to be free from oneself – to free oneself from attachments to things and thoughts. That is, it is a practice based not on religious or intellectual dogma, but on possibilities, the core value of any spiritual practice. In this context, it is hoped that the word 'spiritual' or 'spirituality' no longer needs to remain a branded persona non grata in current art practice or art discourse – and so, we no longer need "to muffle humanity's vital breath, its essential being and very soul."
