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.


“All that we see or seem is but a dream within a dream.”

“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.”
