knowing art creates art

i'm not saying that i went into this shoot with the mindset to give homage to Marc Chagall, but in the thick of the shoot i was able to identify and put my finger on where i had seen these before, and once granted this awareness it gave me license to push the concept further. submersing myself with art and locking it away in my sub conscience, making it become an actual part of me and how my brain ticks and how i see things in a different light - is what makes me create what i do. it influences what i see, and therefore makes my world, my world.  
knowing art helps create further art.
