“Nowadays, in our cities of steel, we still haven’t lost our need for ancient ritual.  Our dances with masks and drum are alive in our bones.  We are witch-doctors in designer jeans.  The same sexual impulses rule our buying power, claw at our self-illusion.  We get high, on whatever, and tune into our instinctual selves.  We seek guides, need teachings.  As we accumulate, we share, and thus we grow.  The more evolved our sharing, the richer our growth.

Oh, beautiful evenings, when we truly share!”

STEVEN ARNOLD

“I want images to be complicated, not smart, designy little things.  I’m bringing back density – pieces that take time to look at.”
