What Art Is · What Art Is Not

Art is something created and crafted for the mind and body that carries special significance (emotional, intellectual, spiritual, aesthetic, metaphoric, symbolic, societal, or political).

Art is not a landscape. It is not solely an experience, nor only an idea. Art does not come into being because of its placement, nor through someone's assertion of its existence.

At its best, art reaches our body, spirit, and mind with the same force and in the same breath.

Body: my material substance.

Spirit: my non-material substance.

Mind: the place I think, feel, and experience.
