Explore ideas about the nature and practice of art.
I view art as a means of connecting one world with another. I prefer this to it being considered 'a means of exchange', a phrase which implies art is transactional.
My experience of art is more than the acquisition of facts, information, and skills. Art can provide these things, but its fundamental qualities are that it inspires, reveals, and touches the spirit. For me, art is aligned with love, and beauty, and these are best given or expressed when far removed from seeking something in return.
