Looking for Arete > About the Project

Looking for Arete artwork and writings result from a distinct moment of awe I have experienced because of a unique and specific arete. They are my deeply personal wonderings about the immense curiosity, bravery, commitment and perseverance that true excellence requires.

The artworks I make for Looking for Arete are given as gifts to individuals participating in the project.

There are many reasons why I am giving the art away, but the noblest is this:

Because (right now)
The world needs (us to feel)
More awe (beautifully).

Awe: a feeling of reverential respect mixed with fear or wonder. -Oxford Languages
