That is what we are. We are amateurs in the original sense of the Latin word, «people who love».
Yes, we love the artists who have a temper. Well, maybe not in the sense of what is commonly understood by «having a temper»... although. Let’say that we love artists with strong creative personalities. Yes, we love the artists who still resist, in an age when we are being told every day what we must think and why we must think it.
Yes, we love these artists who are taken over by a deep force out of their control and which forces them to forsake all control; a force of which expression is synonymous to authenticity and emotion. Yes, we love the artists whose artworks, while being so intimately their own, touch so many other people all very different from each other, reflecting the spirit of Life.
YES, we love Artists!
