Something Old, Something New

“Coincidence does not exist in art, there is a discovery or an artistic insight. If you are sensitive to it and look at the world with an open mind than you will discover forms, alone or a combination of forms, that create a very beautiful entirety. Rubbish does not exist, everything can serve multiple purposes. In contrast to the goal and the function for it” ___________________________________________________________ Arnold Aerts
