Everything you can imagine is real.

Pablo Picasso

I believe good art can change the world.

And I want to change the world. Don’t you?

For art to be good it must be authentic and it must be challenging. There’s no power in pretending to be something you’re not. And there’s no power in allowing yourself to remain as you are.

This, then, is our commission. To be certain, and to question. To be ourselves, and to extend ourselves. To look backwards and forwards so we can be most abundantly now.

Imagine a world of people living this way. No more envy, doubt, or fear. No more tantrums, abuses, and power struggles. No more violence, terror, and sadness. All of that hate wrapped up in a fundamental desire to simply live.

If we can imagine it, we can see it. If we can see it, we can create it. This is our job as artists – to imagine a world of people who are truly alive, and to expose the reasons why we aren’t.

So until we are that world, there is work to be done.
