Andrew Rogers

Humans appear neither content nor satisfied with visual representation being a mere symbol. The human intellectual process which involves perception and interpretation of an image and requires more than a constructed isolated diagram of his interpretation of the mind’s image. Individuals, significantly at some point and somewhere early in the mists of prehistory discovered; whether by chance, by accident or deliberate intent to develop a means of marking witness to their existence and apparent values.

“What art is, in reality, is this missing link, not the links which exist. It’s not what you see that is art; art is the gap.”

Marcel Duchamp
