Artist Statement Submitted 2015To me, art is everything. It makes up everything I see around me. I think anything can be turned into a work of art, it just takes a different way of thinking. Just looking at art can do that. It forces us to look within for something we can relate to. We want to understand what we see. It changes us and we become free. We become open for expression. This type of thinking is different from anything else because it has purpose without any restriction.
To me, art is also communication. It's language with emotion. It helps us connect no matter what differences we might have. No barriers are created and discrimination's not allowed. We understand ourselves at a higher level. We seek truth instead of opposition. Everyone has a fair chance to interpretation. We can all be heard no matter if we create or appreciate art.
