Jim Carrey introduces his art in vulnerable new mini-doc
“Something inside of you is always telling a story.”
Jim Carrey, renowned for his comedic chops and rubber-like ability to contort his face and body, is introducing us to a new, less caffeinated side of his artistic pursuits.
In a new mini-documentary called Jim Carrey: I Needed Color, we find a pensive and vulnerable Carrey walking us through his artistic journey of the past six years. The documentary is only six minutes long but packs a lot of deep thoughts, creations and color into its short span. Carrey’s creations span clay sculptures, life-size paintings, drawings, and collages.
“I think what makes someone an artist is they make models of their inner life,” Carrey said. “They make something come into physical being that is inspired by their emotions or their needs or what they feel the audience needs.”
Some of these pieces are truly impressive. Tell us what you think of Carrey’s artwork in the comments.
