Technology is a tricky matter. It brings the world closer to you but at the same time it can isolate you from the world you are trying to get closer to. I like to think that is where art brings balance for me. A snapshot from a smart phone camera can capture a memory while forming an inspiration for a new work of art. It brings a gust of fresh air in a time where society wants instant results. Let's allow this year, 2017, to be a year where we recapture our core passion and allow the world around us be tools to thrive on, not drain and become lost. Cheers to 2017!
