UNTITLED, 1982. An inventive living tableau created by American visionary artist Steven Arnold.

“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

Death of Simplicity

“Isn’t [God] the ultimate artist?  Look at the skies he painted, the mountains built, and the people he made.  We’re all just reflections of his great creativity.”
