Artist Maia Mellier
Art like every other form of human expression is a story of the soul - the soul of the one it is expressed through and the soul of the one who connects with it and absorbs the experience.
It is a communication of the place we've all experienced at one time or another in our lives. The place where time stops, where a day passes quickly and yet seems to last a week. The place where we become absorbed and attentive. Wholly and fully involved we forget ourselves, we forget the world - we are in the Zone - the Zone has us and gifts us its mysteries. The gift of creativity comes through humans and creates civilisations and cultures. In times of difficulty human beings find solace in the creative gifts of other human beings, the stories, the films, the music and the artwork. Connecting to the Zone nourishes & inspires us.
"What is Art? (...) like a declaration of love: the consciousness of our dependence on each other. A confession. An unconscious act that none the less reflects the true meaning of life - love and sacrifice."
