"For me, art, like love, is elusive of easy definition. To make art or to love equally exposes one to the possibilities of rejection. In art you can be graded, you can be judged, but as long as it has value to you, it is nevertheless one of a kind, like love. Art is subjective; it is coloured by the artist’s emotions. It reflects the artist’s perspective of a personal reality. Similarly, love becomes meaningful through the lover’s world."
