“Where the spirit does not work with the hand, there is no art.” – DaVinci
There seems to be two mindsets with artists today. One artist says, ‘It’s your responsibility to understand me’ and the other says ‘it is my responsibility to communicate with you’. Those are exact opposites. Never allow an artist, through their work, to make you feel uninformed, unenlightened or less than anyone. The issue is the work and not the viewer. The world is in little need of another message of chaos or confusion. Art should provide clarity, illumination, and understanding; deeper insight into the wonders of life and love and faith.
When someone looks at the sculpture I will create over my lifetime, I want them to see a sincere body of work that reflects the divine design, and a life spent responding to the whispers of the soul.
