“I’m almost certain there must be a chemical change in our bodies which enables us to become open to the process of making and thinking about art or music or literature –completely and without restraint. Whether chemical or “alchemical”, I think I may have discovered the exact conditions for creativity and in my case, art making at “A Studio in the Woods” in Lower Algiers, Louisiana.” – Alexis Wreden
