Lore; a body of traditions and knowledge on a subject or held by a particular group, typically passed from person to person by word of mouth.

And, as we all know word of mouth changes from mouth to mouth, truth becomes folklore, “In the beginning was the word”. Words become pictures, pictures become art, deeds become legends, and legends become truth. There is only one truth in art; truth to oneself.

What we believe is what we are. Seeing is believing. What we don’t see is what’s really there. A landscape can morph into a series of shapes and colours, blocks of shape and colour can become a landscape.

As darkness falls, shadows shift and hares become witches. Cats become familiars, is this the world of imagination? What is imagination? After all, we can’t imagine something we’ve never seen; a dream can only portray what the eye has already absorbed.

Reality is beautiful and it grows everywhere, this is the lore of the land.
