The artist’s job is to “make pretty.” Sometimes pretty things. Sometimes beautiful ideas. I strive to do both.
But what makes a beautiful idea beautiful is the relief or reconciliation it yields its beholder. An epiphany about some newly learned truth can be a beautiful idea just as well as escapist dreams can be. When I make art, I seek to manifest my own dominion of beautiful ideas into yours and meet you in this ethereal realm where this happens. When an art piece takes you to this place, you’ll know it and I’ll see you there. ~ Mac Hillenbrand
