With the wide eyes of a child I'm moved to wonder at
everything there is to see. Art, I believe has the function to save us
from disaster by creating alongside the everyday world another realm,
fashioned to the requirements of the human spirit and in keeping with
an inner order which is in sharp contrast to the chaos around us. It
provides a kind of anchorage. I wish to make my own personal statement
- tenuous though in a truly human voice.
