I got to meet Luis Gonzalez-Palma this week. He gave a lecture at AIB. A beautiful mind...a romantic...and a visual poet.
My favorite quote...
"It takes work to give yourself freedom"
"What isn't there is often more interesting"
It was such a privilege to meet him.
I have long thought that what is more important in my work is not what I create...it is what people walk away with. The art/object serves a greater purpose when it is shared with the public and when the public brings meaning to it and takes it away to the recesses of their own existence.
