Their art is an exercise in exploration of the self, as a creature of nature; an evolution through understanding of their physical, sensual and spiritual needs. It is an expression of personal confusions, visions, emotions and realizations. On one hand it is a projection of their thoughts on worldly matters, which often baffle and trouble them, and on the other it is a personification of their lunacies, fantasies, magical dreams, wicked thoughts and mischievous self expressions. Through its untamed and fantastic imagery, their art seeks to invite intimacy, inspire introspection and provoke dialogue.
