Notable Quotable: Srikanth Reddy on the Work of Art

"The 'work' of art may be to simply clear a space for reflection and feeling amid the onslaught of modern life---and that in itself is a pretty serious act of excavaton. To that end, it may help for the artist to think of him or herself as a kind of laborer---while also keeping in mind that play is every bit as important to creative life as work is." ---Srikanth "Chicu" Reddy, poet, 2013 NEA Literature Fellow
