Joseph Beuys is one of my favorite artists. This image of him is from his, performance: How to Explain painting to a dead hare, 1965. He talked a lot about using non-traditional materials, among other things, to find your true medium/voice. I spent a lot of time trying non traditional things to make art with. Like tar, resin, found objects, building materials. But in the end I found I could express myself best with paint, oil paint. I like the dirty bunnies in the foreground.
