As always, we had a very good tour of the exhibit with the passionate guide who took us around and explained the art beautifully. We were also fortunate enough to have him all to ourselves, and felt comfortable and free in asking questions.
As I look at the pictures of each work of art again, their stories flash through my mind. They become the foundation for the reminder of why we need art.
Even if it may not pay the bills, even if it may not eradicate world suffering, even if it may not right all the wrongs in the world – we need art to validate, to make sense of, to grapple with the burden which is life and existence. And that was what I felt, on the way back from the White Rabbit Gallery that day.
Looking forward to their second exhibit of the year 🙂
