The imagination is a powerful tool. An artist can use it to show others the world as [they see] it and to bring others into [their] dream of what the world could be.”

It is through the human brain’s capacity and ability to handle intricate processes of sorting, sifting and organizing visual stimuli that humankind is enabled to achieve insight into the ordered inter-relationships of our environment and consequently the manner in which we respond to the visual impulses received from without. It is this three fold process and inter-linking between the elements; interaction, interpretation and response that enables humans to attempt to discern and to make a statement about, the processes of the nature of things and their intense variations in all their passive and dynamic moods.

“Imagination is the beginning of creation. You imagine what you desire, you will what you imagine and at last you create what you will”

George Bernard Shaw

[The Perfect Wagnerite, words of the Serpent to Eve, 5:348])

“Go where the silence is and say something.”
