“Art will never be able to exist without nature.”
Art and form are linked with function and nature, with feeling and seeing, with emotion and the relationship between the observed and men and women’s particular unique situations and particular environmental circumstances; and their reaction to and interaction with it.
“Art is about building a new foundation, not just laying something on top of what’s already there.”
Art is constantly evolving and has been ever since the very beginning when prehistoric artists began to paint on the walls of caves.
That which has changed, through each differing age, is the way in which artists perceive and interpret art’s purpose within the world that surrounds them.
“Change is the constant, the signal for rebirth, the egg of the phoenix.”
