We turn to art because we want elucidation, yes, but also because we want reflection. We want to look at something and say, “Hey, I’ve felt like that” or “I know what that person is going through.” Driving all of art is that hunger to connect, that idea that the artist can say something that will express a piece of themselves but will also reach out and grab us, make us feel something or understand something or simply know ourselves a little better.
