In any society, the artist has a responsibility. His effectiveness is certainly limited and a painter or writer cannot change the world. But they can keep an essential margin of non-conformity alive. Thanks to them the powerful can never affirm that everyone agrees with their acts. That small difference is important.

∼ Luis Buñuel ∼

Life flickers on the frame like beautiful hummingbirds.

 That is the film that always comes out blank.

 The painting the artist can't get shapes to fit.

 The poem that shrugs off every word you try.

 The music no one has ever heard.
