Doug's statement

I feel art is not just an embodiment of the artist, but actually a part of their subconscious. While sometimes artists go into projects wanting to tell a story about their piece, sometimes their piece tells a story about them that they were unaware of. Artists don’t just make the art, the art makes the artists. That is what I want from my art. I want it to tell me something about myself that I was unaware of or not thinking of at the time of creation. A past love? A future desire? Yesterday’s mistake? Tomorrow’s hope? That is what art does. It goes deeper than what the artist intends, and that is what makes it so beautiful.
