I stopped trying to figure out the “meaning of art”, what it means or its value to the world at large. To me, it is everything and nothing at the same time. It frustrates me to no end, but if I did not create daily, I would lose my mind. I’m finding myself looking at transitions, lately, I am interested in pinpointing the precise moment of change; the exact moment that something becomes nothing, The defining act where good becomes evil or the shade that stands in the direct middle between light and dark.
