I believe that art only realizes its full potential when it reaches for the divine. A corollary to this is that an artist only realizes his full potential when he reaches for the divine. Throughout history art has been many things. It has been a slave to the state, a lackey to ego, a prisoner of decoration and in our present age, a captive of the abstracted confusion that is modern thought. I feel that only in reaching for the divine is art liberated from this sad state of servitude.
