A Few Observations

by Stephen McGarry in The Horizon - Perspectives
 Art has been for me a way to stretch my imagination as I observe the world around me. Big things are really only a combination of many small things that make a whole. It is the whole, on which we commonly focus, which is of little interest without appreciating the details.
By recombining the small pieces, we create new and different things. The skill of the artist is not how to duplicate real life, but to create something that is new and unknown.
