Art and the Ravages of Time

In the Mahabharata, the great Indian epic, there is a line repeated more than once,  “Time cooks all things.”2301173832_9b3481724c cliffs-end-farm-skeleton-of-an-old-man_4

Life is short and art is long.

The ocean just outside our gallery will outlive our art, which in turn will outlive me.  But even the ocean is slowly cooked by time.  Against this immensity it is art which gives us a foothold–some sense of identity.

Art is our proof that we were here for an instant.
