The process of making art is a quest to find remedies for fractures and injuries that exist on all levels of human experience, private or social, and, in a symbolic manner, to perform corrections. It is a process of discovering those patterns which run across the layers of reflection, as they show up in the initial process of creation, enabling curative corrections and adjustments that treat the artwork as a voodoo doll.
