Art Delivers Us From the Ordinary To The Extraordinary
by Stephanie Galloway
Art making is one of those activities that gives us the ability to observe our daily life experiences and see how they are connected to the bigger picture that makes up the entire Universe. Much like the act of looking at the night sky or the grand beauty of nature lets us realize that creation is not only about our little corner of the world but is part of a vast existence.
Art is a way for us to convey and understand the feelings connected with knowing that we are part of something that is infinite! This is why at times when we see a work of art it can give us the same sensation and wonder that seeing the Grand Canyon does. When we do art we can step out of the illusion that we are just defined by the small space we occupy and know that we are limitless!
