An open appeal to frustrated art viewers:

 Parade Rain, 2011.

Pull away from needing meaning; move towards associations, memories.

Questions are normally more helpful than answers; besides, what good would answers be without them?

Rediscover the childlike sensation of learning a new color, and pure enjoyment in seeing it clash, click and melt with another color.

Re-investigate the edges of things, without needing to immediately get to the marrow.

Close your eyes if it helps.

Remember that definitions often close doors; absorb the mystery; be okay with not knowing; re-learn the education of the unsure.

Pick up a pencil, and make an unplanned mark; a movement straight from your body.

Remind yourself that, though art is a discipline, it is more importantly innate.

Art is the making; not the product.
