My son once said art was about "breaking things in the right places". He was 8 and I was trying to explain what juxtaposition meant. I use this quote a lot when I teach, I figure people discover things about art and themselves when they try to decipher it.

Art is so hard to explain though. I am fascinated by the impossibility of art categorization, I get in trouble every time I’m asked to explain my work or technique. I was schooled in the most traditional way starting from the same basics that Renaissance artists and their pupils learned, like making your own oils or studying the bodies in the morgue (it's a long story, I grew up in communist Bulgaria)...
