Can art save us?
Art has to save us from a mundune and generic existence! Art is essential nourishment for the heart and soul - there is nothing that can replace the reward of receiving an astute response to one's artistic offering. Art challenges our perceptions and inspires creative engagement in all aspects of life - art exposes our vulnerabilities yet reassures that our emotional choices in our daily life are valid and somewhat significant in this ‚'blip' of our universal existence as a species.
