The idea that art is simply a way to exhibit and to be seen leaves my chest empty.

The idea that art creates a safe haven to connect with something in you that is greater than yourself makes me hopeful.

To create something that aspire silences rather than buzz. To hold the ideas of the ancient in my right hand and ideas of the contemporary in my left.

Evergreen art is few and far apart. The charming, loud and trendy have long winters ahead of them.

There is so much to learn and respect. Not enough time.

So be in your studio more than you are at the bar, attend to your studio practice more than you do your tv, work in your studio more than your job.

Only then will the waters become clear and the fish will appear.
