Art is not created in a vacuum.
The moment an artist puts a brush to canvas, a hand to a lump of clay, a welding torch to a piece of steel, a pair of scissors and glue to the back of a wicker chair, they are participating in a History of Objects, a history of around 25,000 years provenance.
Our hearts should always guide us when it comes to art. It leads us towards what we like and don't like. Our preferences say something about us. The art we love shows us who we are beyond our small identities. We are more than the personalities we have chosen to participate in the random strands of society we find ourselves within. The art we love points the way to our larger beings.
