"The artist's task is to save the soul of mankind; and anything less is dithering while Rome burns. Because of the artists, who are self-selected for being able to journey into the Other. If the artists cannot find the way then the way cannot be found." Terence McKenna

"My mission is nothing short of that. New technologies in seeing the world, using old master techniques. Reinvent the world for the unimaginative." - Sergio Barrale

About

"I started this series as a means for exploration, an exploration of self, and an exploration of the perspectives of other artists.

This series is an unabridged documentation of conversations between artists. It’s a series dedicated to breaking down the barriers we tend to set up in our own minds. I want to inspire future creatives to have the courage to explore and experiment. This is about making dreams a reality and not about letting our dreams fall to the wayside.

My intention is to give my audience a sense of real human connection, something that feels rich and organic.

When I was thinking of a title I thought of the word “movement”.

In relation to the Renaissance period in art, my goal for this program is to signify a rebirth of consciousness towards the way we look at contemporary art."
