“From chaos there rises the world of the spirit”. These words of Adam Mickewicz, written at a time of a great hardship for his Polish homeland, prompt my hope for you: may your art help to affirm that true beauty which, as a glimmer of the Spirit of God, will transfigure matter, opening the human soul to the sense of the eternal. John Paul II, Letter to Artists
