“I am here in great distress and with great physical strain, and have no friends of any kind, nor do I want them; and I do not have enough time to eat as much as I need; my joy and my sorrow, my repose are these discomforts.”- Michelangelo
Sometimes when I create, I am so consumed by passion I feel like the master. Michelangelo’s ‘unsociableness’ has been seen as the typical attitude of what was known in the Renaissance as the vir melanchonicus. I can be so absorbed in a solitary contemplative state, wholly wrapped up in my art, that involvement in creative activity is transformed into suffering.
