Making art. Seeking truth. It's the artist's path to shaping their identity. That path which we surrender and chase involuntarily. It is this vision that consumes the artist to transform and express the nature of existence. Hoping the work will become our legacy, if not but a surrogate to the reality of a future of nonexistence. Creating is the eternal vision and the motivation that seeks a truth and a beauty that is yet to come. The act of making is nothing more than a covering over despair and a hope for eternality.
