#TimeIsRunningOut. You’ve a lot to accomplish – make the best of your time!

“Each generation gets to reinvent art in its own image.” Because art is an act of description, it is inevitable that what it describes will reflect every generation’s bias of the moment. It is not a strict reflection of a time but an interpretation rendered in a language that is always in a state of transformation.
