Jim Carrey: I Need color

What does making art tell us about ourselves?

For actor Jim Carrey, making art was a vocation that chose him. One New York winter, he felt compelled to bring color to his life, so he painted it out. As he puts it in the video, “artists make models of their inner life.”

For Carrey, art has become a form of catharsis. He also delves into sculpture, learning about himself through clay molding.

Whether it’s in the studio or on stage, creative diversions seem to be a form of self-healing for Jim Carrey. Perhaps it is the playful state of mind is what puts us at peace.  Uniqueness can be our moral compass.

“People that are different have a shot at being original.”
