“I found I could say things with color and shape that I couldn’t say in any other way- things that I had no words for.” – Georgia O’Keefe
“Art as a helper in times of trouble, as a means of understanding the conditions of human existence and facing the frightening aspects of those conditions, as the creation of a meaningful order offering a refuge from the unmanageable confusion of outer reality– these most welcome aids are grasped by people in distress and used by the healers who come to their assistance.” -Rudolf Arnheim
