The most beautiful dreams; the monsters in you're worst nightmares and fears;
the frozen moments inside your memory that wont pass on; the bouncing words
of all the texts you read, heard, wrote and said; the images dancing on throbbing
rhythms in you're head:
everything is real, credible, legitimate and relevant, everything is reality.
What it boils down to is to encounter it all with the highest level possible of elegance
and materiality. Art is about exception and celebrating diversity, an alternative evolution.
Like Darwin himself was the exception. After his extensive description and drawings of the
Galápagos Islands they are no longer considered hell on earth like those before him, but as
a wondrous paradise. Art as a place where you can be who you are, become what you want
and discover what you're capable of.
A work of art doesn't fulfil an efficient need but creates a desire and passion that, once awakened
cannot be tamed. It absorbs both moral as well as the artist. Talking art is like infatuated lovers
discussing love before they kiss; like birds writing music before they sing
