“Perhaps the artistic impulse is a struggle against death, an effort to affirm life in the face of the certainty of dying. In contrast to the entropic directionality of a life cycle, art works in opposition to a living organism’s tendency towards slowing down, disillusion, and finally death. The artist searches for quickness, lightness, and exactitude in the face of rot and decay. Fueled by curiosity, energy, and hope, the artist enters and accepts the darkness and in that acceptance sometimes discovers a thin vein of light.”
– Anne Bogart, from What’s the Story
