Human lives are but fleeting and inconsequential moments. Yet we feel compelled to immortalize our earthly presence through buildings, monuments and artworks. We search for spiritual truth in the objects we create. Through art, man strives to link the physical and the spiritual, to capture the invisible in a visible form. But the physical can never truly embody the invisible. Art reveals our innermost desires and longings but does not satisfy them. This apparent shortcoming is in fact art’s strength. Art expresses that which is beyond its own abilities to communicate. It shows us the truth of our human condition and enables us to engage with others in a way that nothing else in this world does. And ultimately, art can and should point away from itself to that which is all consuming and truly satisfying.
