ARTIST'S STATEMENT
all photos Jim Lestrange

"Visual art to me is not just about making things. It is a language. Children adopt this language as a natural course before they tackle the written word.
If we don't keep using that language after a prolific childhood of art-making, then we lose an avenue of expression that forces us to slow down and look more closely and carefully at everything, that puts us in touch  

with details we never noticed before while at the same time allowing us to be in touch with our own feelings and imagination. Most of all, it enables us to communicate across boundaries of country, age, centuries and culture."

--Lise Winne
