"I think that it's important for me to realize that things are coming together – skill, observation, and consideration. As an artist, I pursue what will give me the greatest satisfaction and joy, a communication filled with discovery and triumph. What's in a medium? What's in a subject matter, or style? I am currently studying the concept of beauty, and why we find something so. What is preconceived, and what can be edited? I always knew, and now fully realize that function always takes a form, not as a conquest but as a lover. I appreciate the opportunity to exhibit this intimate process itself as the art." - Carrie Graber
