Behind the looking glass world

…so that the viewer can have a sense of looking at something invisible to the mere eye, the reader of understanding something beyond comprehension alone, the symphony listener of hearing something inaudible; a fleeting sensation of something true and beautiful that lies beyond even mirrors.
The inspiration for a work of art may hail from as far away as childhood. Inspiration can arise from a single overheard sentence, a glimpse of an image, a long-forgotten sound or scent. It is around this original inspiration that the form begins to take shape; the artist discovers the elements belonging to the form, chooses the right ones and discards the false, however beautiful, to make visible that fleeting sensation.
The sensation conveyed by the work is neither joy nor sadness. There is always an element of seriousness about it but elation as well, for discovering truth; it just needs to be captured.
