The Rav and Karen Berg said that when a plate drops and hits the floor, it will break and shatter into pieces of different sizes – some pieces smaller and some bigger. That same plate may be reconstructed by putting all those pieces together again. Even though the pieces on the top are far away from the pieces at the bottom, those on the right are far from those on the left, and although the pieces have totally different shapes, they are still a part of the same plate.

They do not have to ‘like’ or ‘dislike’ one another and they really should not touch one another, but when they are put together serving the same purpose, doing the same thing they were created to do, they do it beautifully! Some of the pieces may be far away from others, but they all ‘work’ together.

Stating A Fact. is my way of translating this thinking into art.

Stating A Fact. was created to raise awareness and to promote peace and unity in the world.  I promise myself that this will be the first in a series of works that will focus on the importance of UNITY.

It is a fact that we are all different.  Each of us has different views, sexual preferences, religious beliefs and practices; and that’s okay.  We can all live together, even with our differences.  Most importantly, we must maintain human dignity, respect for self and for one another.  Love Thy Neighbor As Thyself” should be the words written on a ‘neon banner’, hanging at eye level at all times.
