Kasart-Alley is dedicated to the highest principles
in both commerce, and artistic expression. As an illustrator, I have always seen art as a service. It is the artist's responsibility
and yes, the artist's angst, to see the world through the eyes of others. Artist's have sometimes carried the stereotype of self
important or self serving but listening deeply enough to flesh out the vision of another requires a certain selflessness.
Making art of any kind requires a degree of wearing one's heart on the sleeve, and that is the challenge. This is
not to make the artist a hero or a martyr, the artist is just doing what she/he is inclined to do and studied to do.
Seeing the fruition of an inspiration, whether
it is ones own or anothers, is not unique to the writer or the painter or the heavenly french chef; it is the common result
of creativity that they all share. We must keeps going
in this ritual during
a techological age.
All of the arts are intertwined.I'm listening to the radio and a song and
it is saying "I'm livin' my life like it's golden, golden . . .' Art is what keeps us alive and seeing the 'golden'.
