"When art reaches a certain point, you see, it returns to the more primitive, and what ever it has achieved, it will use that to move forward -- for one day once again to return to the primitive, and I think that is the way it will always be with art...it is a constant circular dance...what is modern today, is actually primitive."
~William Henry Johnson
