What is the meaning of doing art for you?
The meaning of Art to me is life itself. Funny
how people set Art in some special box. If
asked, folks would say they know nothing about
Art. However they do. They live with it everyday,
and would absolutely notice if it suddenly
disappeared from the planet. It's gazing at the
ground in a daze of thought, it's watching your
cat, it's love and hate and rage and tenderness.
Artists are simply the ones with the opportunity
and skill to set these thing in some detached
form, be it a concept or sculpture or painting
or Whatever. But as Art it is just another,
however elevated, form of life. Being an
abstract painter I'm often asked "What is it?"
and I reply, not being smart but honest,
oil paint on canvas.
