Artist:           Van Donohue (Mixed Media)

"We are living in a time in which half of our reality is an emotionless screen, and real human emotion feels like a foreign concept. Real emotions are messy, visceral, and difficult to code or contain, but are the lifeblood of our creative spirit. 

                      As the world we live in becomes an increasingly stressful environment for our biological,                            emotional brains, knowing how to channel stress into creativity is how artists will survive.

                      Art is not only a form of survival, but also therapy. Like the monsters in children's

                      drawings, some of the images in my art are evoked of emotions that cannot otherwise be

                      exorcised; the way a monster on paper is less scary than one you can't see lurking in the

                      depths of the uncharted imagination."


Music:          Howdy Emerson (Celtic Harp)
