Creative man plays a decisive role here. The creation process and the creative process... appear to be different ways of saying the same thing, and yet they are distinct. We reflect on the level of the artist, the work of art and the viewer.
The creation process places a greater emphasis on the process of making, while the creative process tends to allude more to the artistic spark that occurs and is depicted, the so-called 'aha moment' that is so hard to comprehend.
