Even without defining "state of mind" the statement that art comes from it seems to be a truism. What is an individual without a state of mind? Dead perhaps, not even dreaming. Assuming the artist is not dead or in the deepest coma, if he/she is mobile enough to put pen to paper or brush to canvas a state of mind is a given. Diana
