For me, a painting exists on multiple levels. On the aesthetic level, there is an immediacy, it is an object of purely visual impact, of physical appeal. On an intellectual level, art is a form of communication, it can tell stories or pose questions. And on yet another level, it can engage both the artist and the viewer in a spiritual dialogue. The visual arts have the capacity to accomplish this in a way that is neither literal not linear, in a way that is difficult to explain in words. For me, that is the appeal of painting, to approach the sublime.
