Artists have always focused on their passions. The Greeks created images of the body, the Egyptians of their Pharaohs, the medieval painters of the Crucifixion, and the Impressionists of nature, color, and light. Modern artists do this, too, but their passions are no longer external. In this age we care about what is inside us.
