Statement:
I believe all great art is transformative In that it inspires the beholder and enriches the society in which it is created. Undoubtedly, great artists are themselves charged and quickened in the process of working. Dylan ThoMas wrote: “I write for the love of man and in praise of God and I’d be a damn fool if I didn’t

Unfortunately, much art today reflects too often the commerCial, cynical, or sadistic qualities in contemporary society, making waves of visual or audio static. Therefore, we are challenged to find in new art the nucleus of spiritual awakening which can fire, astonish and transform us with wonder and the need to create.
