I use bright colours because we retain our sensate selves long after we cease to be children, who are drawn to things that are fun, lively, constructive, visceral and adventurous. We all were once children and to continue to live vibrantly and vitally we must never lose our sense of wonderment that the colourful and visceral so powerfully prompts and promotes.
The Remembrance of Things Past our bridge to a bright and beautiful future. This is more urgently so in the Information Age when simulations and digitals have very nearly killed the true joy and adventure of building sand houses at the beach, construction of toy cars, the shaping of beautiful metals, the grooming and backing of baby dolls, is a reality inexplicably, and sadly, beyond our grasp.
