To create art is to communicate. It is to open individual perception for collective experience. Andrey Tarkovsky12 defines art as a form of meta-language, a unique method for conveying ideas and impressions as visuals. Images are also one of the truly universal languages. Unlike languages, visuals do not depend on words in writing and therefore require no translation. They can be perceived like snapshots of memories, stimuli of visual-spatial perception.
Creating visuals means to convey an impression. Drawing, however, is more than just an imitation or re-enactment of experience. It is exploring the limits of what we can understand. Art, above all, is about discovery: to draw something is to see it in a different way. Through visualising my ideas I am making new connections that have not yet existed, it is an active dialogue between material and thought in reaction to each other.
