Ben Gatien's Virtual Gallery

"The artist brings something into the world that didn't exist before, and he does it without destroying something else. A kind of refutation of the conversion of matter."
   -John Updike

"An artist cannot fail; it is a success to be one."
   -Charles Horton Cooley, Life and the Student
