Philosophy of Art & Design | Art & design is a reflection of beauty, of good, of things that inspire us to be more than we are. It is a unrelenting passion to see the world through a different lens- a mode of communication that suffices when words are not enough. With one brush stroke we can evoke the authenticity of experiences such as heartache, triumph, loss, redemption. There’s something about art that moves us. Even if the style is not our preference, the essence of created art connects with the core of our humanity. Like somehow we fit, somehow we understand and identify with that which is created because we too are the creation of a masterful artist. And like art, we too are complex, insatiably deep, dynamic- words often do not suffice.
