STATEMENT FROM THE ARTIST
For me, art remains a sacred ritual; an attempt to create an aesthetic which inspires people. Even in its lowest moments there is an elegance to life. Artistic expression is meant to wake us from our slumber, to make us question, and to call us to action. Artists share the life of the mind, soul, and emotions with complete strangers and this is an act of courage. I believe that producing art can be more significant than healing the sick, defending the oppressed, negotiating peace or any service to humanity. For art can, and has, healed, defended, and served humanity globally. I have seen this with my own eyes. It is a powerful ability which carries with it certain responsibilities. Such a gift should be shared.
