“This piece is a reflection on how I sometimes take life for granted. How I dwell in the past and memory. How I dwell in fear, the fear of death and uncertainty about what comes after. How I sometimes block myself off from the world. How these last couple of years have given us, in a way, a second chance. To really consider our place and purpose in this world. I don’t know that I have the answer, but I want to believe that it is to continue to grow, to learn about ourselves and each other through love, empathy and human connection. Under the exteriors we have built up to protect ourselves, I believe love lives there. This work represents that sacred energy we share, the need to give and receive love, under all of the walls we, our history, society has built up to block us from that.” Mark Caserta
