Are you an artist? Is everyone? 'My considered view is that the
human condition is innately artistic,' writes Podtolski, an
'occasionally-exhibiting' New Zealand painter. 'Everyone is
potentially an artist: all it takes to become one is the
self-realization that that's what you already are. It is not what
you do that makes you an artist, but your awareness of something
within that constitutes an artistic or aesthetic dimension.'
