Art to me is about expression of that which is innate to each of us as individuals and to all of us as human beings. There is a very close connection between our innermost thoughts and the body in a moment of creative expression. That which we cannot find words for, or sometimes even know is there, comes out in the art we produce without us even trying. Art offers opportunities for deconstruction, reconstruction and reflection on all experience. Small children know this; playing, drawing, dancing and singing to make meaning of their world without any need for instruction. I am ever in awe of the ability art has to show, share and shift that which challenges us day to day navigating the complexities of being human.
