The legacy of art is a record of man’s experience; a vision of his mind and soul; his appetites, aspirations, fears, dreams, delights and beliefs. In light of this, an essential value of painting is that there is something to be revealed and someone to reveal it to.

Art is creative for the sake of realization. Painting need serve as a work of faith, of passionate involvement and conviction. The endurance of painting is dependent upon its continuing pertinence to life; its utility should be considered in terms of its revelatory nature.
