True art arises from love and vulnerability to the beauty and pain of life. We sense in our creative fire the possibility of resolving the pain, in our bodies, in our hearts, in our identities, with a perfect victory of love. This is the glimpse of heaven, in whatever symbolic language we choose to paint it, a world in which love resounds at the center, victorious and unbounded.
I think the true aim of all sincere artists is the realization of heaven on earth. The glimpses of inspiration and power that we attune to as artists are ultimately glimpses of heaven. Each authentic artist in our own right contributes to the grounding of heaven’s perfection in the evolutionary context of our world. We are working to reconcile the trials of history in a resolved platform on earth capable of upholding the victory of heaven.

Renowned philosopher and teacher of the ancient city of Alexandria, Hypatia lived ~360 - 415 AD. She was widely recognized for her wisdom as a scholar in the great historic city, in the context of a culture where women were considered to be property and without substantial social influence. She constructed devices known as "astrolabes," which had many uses, such as telling time based on the position of celestial objects.
