Eye Freshener

"Children dawdle to look at what adults hurry past. They take time because they have time. They see the world through fresh eyes. Maybe this is why artists who push us to look more carefully at simple things may also strike a slightly melancholic note. They remind us of a childlike condition or wonderment that we abandoned once we became adults and that we need art to highlight occasionally, if only to recall for us what we have given up."*
