"Art is a gift of medium and meditation, the visual quest for some existential truth, a conduit of human spirit. Art is not a superficial luxury of an indulgent society but rather it is a necessary reinforcement of our aspirations, our need for meaning, and the mirror for how we become ourselves. Civilization and its art are symbiotic and inseparable.
The artist is the sage and art is the looking glass.
The artist is the healer and art is the cure.
The artist is the shaman and art is the vision.
The artist is the creator and art is the the divine gift. "
