Thomas Houseago

The present is a daunting time and it does not resemble our fantasies of modernity. However, art provokes thought in an open, abstract sense. How does one use the energy to create possibilities? Art in that sense transcends the problems of its age and time, and escapes it. Art moves beyond humanity and its mundane nature, provoking alternative and optimistic realities.
