In New Reason New Way, life long artist and half of the Colorado based duet The Prairie Scholars, Andy Eppler, recounts his creative journey from superstition to repeatable process with regard to making his art. After losing his faith in the God of his childhood, Andy began a search for more concrete answers to his questions. “If there is no God, what is that feeling of perfect inspiration?” “What is art?” “What is the role of an artist in society?” In New Reason New Way Andy tackles each question and many more with purpose, tenacity, and good humor. Using his unique perspective and powers of reasoning Andy also explains how one can navigate the obstacles that often block the path of creative people trying to produce work. This book is not only about why an artist kept making art even after his original reason for making it had vanished, it is also about how that artist reinvented his process and reimagined his work. This is the new reason and the new way.
