Universal Ideas

Philadelphia Inquirer writer A. D. Amoroso presented an article about me today. It's gratifying to receive publicity for one's work, not just because it reinforces one's ego, but because an artist needs an audience to develop his/her craft and voice. Whether you are a sculptor, painter, musician, actor or singer, it helps to have an audience to respond to your work and for you to receive feedback from the public. Feedback makes one's work less incestuous, otherwise your ideas might tend to breeding among themselves, reinforcing each other. The reality of the outside world modifies ones ideas, taking them from the purely personal and art therapy realm to that of the universal and humanistic one.
