O Hope! Dazzling, radiant Hope!
What a change thou bringest to the hopeless;
brightening the darkened paths, and cheering the lonely way.

“Sculptural form is not the imitation of natural form
any more than poetry is the imitation of natural conversation . . .
While a piece of sculpture may contain visual forms with which we are acquainted by daily experience, it is essentially a design worked out by means of the juxtaposition of masses in space, just as poetry is a design wrought by the sounds of words in time.”
~ Elizabeth Wyn Wood (October 8, 1903 – January 27, 1966)
“Day of Atonement”
“There is no word for art.
We say it is to transfer something from the real to the unreal.
I am an owl, and I am a happy owl.
I like to make people happy and everything happy.
I am the light of happiness and I am a dancing owl.”
~ Ashevak Kenojuak (October 3, 1973 – January 8, 2013)
