I've rarely written about my dead brother Roy. Through Art, through one of his artworks, I was able to write something this morning ... partly to give him life in the internet for my family, especially the young ones who never met him.
"Art. It’s not just about the specificity of the object—it’s about how the object can become a threshold into a new experience. Given my brother’s death at a young age, I don’t have and will never have a huge amount of memories with him—whatever I have will never suffice. But, Art—it gives me a new way to interact with him."
