Fantasy Art. I have a fantasy that art means something. That life is a story, and that art can help to tell that story. When I am successfull as an artist, my art conveys to the viewer the feeling hat life is an ongoing, coherent story, and that it is somehow important that the viewer pay attention to this story. I think line-art is uniquely suited to this task because, no matter how representational it is, line-art is inherently abstract. Even a completely color-blind person doesn’t perceive the world as pattern of pure black and white lines. In the process of “decoding” these lines into a picture, the viewer is forced to invest the image with meaning. With luck and good will, that meaning will go beneath and beyond the simple surface representation of an object to a deeper meaning and significance which is unique to each viewer.
