Throughout the longest periods of human history the value or non-value of art has had its consequences. History proves the folds and recesses of nature and man.  The efforts by artists to project our deepest insights have appeared in peaceful, responsible, noble, laughable, and even criminal forms.  All are collectors.

Art is collecting time, space, history and the future.  I am a collector. I make art because I have no choice. It’s my time.  I’m afraid I can’t help it.
