When you gather a series of choices, untangle their knots, wash the soles of their feet and stack them on top of each other — you'll see a biography take shape. You'll see a life, lived.
I believe art works in this same way.
A piece of art is a series of choices, gathered in one place after their knots have been untangled and the soles of their feet cleansed. Every brush stroke is a decision. Every line, word and syllable. Every note. All choices that act as memoir of the life an artist lives.
