"Art is the expansion into greater consciousness, the practice of opening up to what is.
It is measure and proof of the quality of our experiencing.
It is the action of putting insight into the NOW.
If meditation is my anchor then Art is my grounding.
Life is Art and Art is Life. Inseparably. One." - Bernd Haussmann
