In a world that rarely affords the opportunity for genuine contemplation, art creates a space in which the viewer can momentarily escape the everyday. Regardless the medium or the message, the artist is responsible for every choice found therein. As such, the process of
creating art is anything but shallow, empty, or inactive.
There is no vacancy in art.
“Art is basically made by dissatisfied people who are willing to find some means torelieve the dissatisfaction.” –John Chamberlain
“Discontent is the first step in progress.” –Oscar Wilde
