Art is about understanding. As artists we use art to try and understand the things we do not. Most importantly, though, we use art to to help others understand who we are. In creating art we leave a little of ourselves behind. Sometimes it's just an idea of ours, or a thought. Sometimes it's a secret we've never shared or a dream we've had. Whichever it is, an artist always leaves a trail of secrets in his work; a trail that, if traced back to its roots, leads straight to the artist's soul. - James Elliott, DECODE
