Melanie Prapopoulos states: I believe that an artist has something to say or point out - and due to my studies in art history and literature of Latin America and the Caribbean, my work is greatly influenced by what I have seen or read. I also find that these areas of my interest offer an unique artistic language, which results in a diverse vocabulary for expression. This coupled with ideas of dance result in what I feel is an often ignored reality, one grounded in strong lines and the unexplainable - not just for the peoples of these regions, but in an universal sense.

Keith Morant comments: In trying to come to terms with my compulsion
to paint I have read deeply on the subjects of art,
artists, philosophy, psychology and human creative
history in general. It has been my desire to
comprehend not only the multifold meanings of art,
but also, more importantly, the reasoning behind
my own innate desire to create. My findings, while
certainly enriching my mind as to the necessity of
art as a natural balancing process of the collective
human psyche, has not given any satisfactory
explanations or conclusions as to my personal
