Art for me is a kaleidoscope of the artist's deviant mind.
The inspiration can come from a stimulus that pre-exists within the fences of normalcy. The end result has to be eccentricity, nothing that exists outside. It's the defiance of art lessons.
Art can be a hyperbolic expression of just one or a few elements of a 'whole picture' seen in the physical world. It can simply display how the metal brass reflects light. The metal itself can be absent from the end result. The mind's perception of light bouncing off of it has to become art.
Much like a scientist, the artist has to be able to observe and utilize the quantum entities of each whole.
