Your life work is beautiful . . . the China . . . the Rugs that you so vividly described and the Glass
. . . that is where all your energy needs to continue for now!
You are so good and so on to something
Donald Gerola, Sculptor
How does an artist "explain" their thought process? Why should they, after all, is it not the end result that provides such an explanation? If we have to explain our process, does it not really indicate that we "have to" otherwise the meaning is lost? Is art the same as architecture, where explanation is required to ensure programmatic compliance? No. I don't think so. My art is here for you. It stands on its own. My thinking however, is occasionally brought into question by those who cannot imagine what I imagine. And, I want them to see what I see. And what I see is a moving reality affected by my own humanity, my own beliefs about purpose, existence, and value. My inner world is probably very much different than most.
