"Circling Back to FInd the Beginning at the End" refers to a TS Elliot poem, Four Quartets.
We shall not cease from exploration
And the end of all our exploring
Will be to arrive where we started
And know the place for the first time.
This is often the journey of art and through art. Beginning with the joy and paralysis of endless of possibility. Fighting through only to discover that the new is an expansion of the old.
There are no new stories. It is the familiarity of the story that reminds us of our common humanity.
Art invites stories. A painting provides a magical space between seer and art where stories naturally unfold. And we arrive where we began and know the place for the first time.
