It’s something to take your time over, both in appreciating it, and developing your own art. Because, Fine Art is experimentation, how far can you push something, how far can you take it until it meets what you want it to do. It’s only through experimentation and trying new things and combinations that you’ll get there.

Perhaps this is proof, if proof were needed, of the fact that contemporary art continues to reflect the times in which it is made.
