 “Art is about the individual experience of  creation and the disappearance of the individual self into that action;  creating a thing to the point where the individual becomes the thing itself.  My pursuit of this was a result of my unique training and experiences and  circumstances of my existence. It is one of the ways that I have found to  best serve the whole. The result is for everyone else to determine the  meaning; for their own benefit.”
