I believe that art, like a big, glowing Moon, can stimulate the 'awe and shudder' in one's psyche;
and in doing so bring a little closer the touch of that which may be considered grace. If my creations do this for their beholders, in any small way, then I have not failed in my intent. A favourite quote:
'I was drifting sand in the wind of the world's anger. It is just fate that has brought me back alive.'
