Beauty in Three Forms

I think the tradition of art came to us through the tradition of worship and the effort to make sacred spaces, in order to focus our attention away from distraction and towards the divine.
So, making art is a form of worship.

 I thought about the things
that bring me closer to the divine.
They’re mostly found in nature – a cedar skeleton,
or our galaxy on a clear, moonless night
– things that make me feel connected and alive,
the opposite of distracted or depressed.
But in this exhibit, I wanted to explore both.
