Art as Language


The idea of spirit, essence, magic,
or beauty emerges as the new reference for truth.
Art becomes the most immediate language for depicting reality.

Patti Smith and My Core Series


"The artist seeks contact with his intuitive sense of the gods, but in order to create his work,he cannot stay in this seductive and incorporeal realm. He must return to the material world in order to do his work. It's the artist's responsibility to balance mystical communication and the labor of creation."
-Patti Smith, Just Kids

Shelter from the Storm

Well, I'm livin' in a foreign country but I'm bound to cross the line
Beauty walks a razor's edge, someday I'll make it mine
If I could only turn back the clock to when God and her were born
Come in, she said
I'll give ya shelter from the storm
-Bob Dylan
