#Society allows artists to explore what we don't know in ways that are distinct from the approaches of #science, #religion and #philosophy. As a result, #art bears a unique responsibility in the search for truth.’ @aiww

The artist’s work is informed at every turn by a lifelong study of #organic form. #Nature’s myriad complexities are a source of ongoing fascination to him, from the underlying mathematical principles that drive #life and #growth to the incredible #patterns and forms found in the #natural world.

G – Get to know your ghosts! The hidden and unseen stories and legends are as important as the visible.

Local distinctiveness is essentially about places and our relationship with them. It is as much about the commonplace as about the rare, about the everyday as much as the endangered, and about the ordinary as much as the spectacular.
