My take on Andy Davis Art

Today is a rare day. I have the explanation for my attachment to Andy Davis art. This quote gave me the understanding of what his work means to me.

"Art is a selective re-creation of reality according to an artist's metaphysical value-judgments. An artist recreates those aspects of reality which represent his fundamental view of man's nature. -Ayn Rand, 'Art and Cognition'

A quick glance at Andy's work tells you his soul still has faith in man. In this day and age, I find that both courageous and inspiring. I need that reminder from time to time. The reminder that somebody out there still believes in goodness. Knowing Andy personally backs up the theory of Rand. Andy can get frustrated too, but his soul is very child like and full of hope. Take another look at his work now, can you see it? Amazing how art speaks the language of the soul.
