Art is a narrative that stirs the soul. 

Its purpose, to inspire, teach and heal through inquiry. 

The value to be measured is not in shock, visual trickery or even quality of craft. 

The value is manifest by our experience in its presence.

De gustibus non est disputandum. 

Art is a conduit to the sublime nature of our shared existence. 

Gail Slatter Folwell
