Painter Tom Shannon on his relationship to nature

Painter Tom Shannon:

Nature is — well, it’s a Godsend. It just has so much in it. And I think nature wants to express itself in the sense that we are nature, humans are of the universe.

The universe is in our mind, and our minds are in the universe. And we are expressions of the universe, basically.

As humans, ultimately being part of the universe, we’re kind of the spokespeople or the observer part of the constituency of the universe.
