Like writing, visual arts are consumed as separate entities from their creators. And yet each work is necessarily imbued with the—am I actually going to say this?—soul of the artist. I can't believe I said that. Forget soul. It should be that each work is imbued with the torment of the artist, the passion, the grace, the darkness. Frida Kahlo said "I don't paint dreams or nightmares. I paint my own reality." Each creation from each artist is another reality, endlessly multiplying in the mind of the viewer, growing into its own new reality, constructing a new world, in a language that has no need of words.
