Art Without Art, another revealing collaboration between Roy Oxlade and Marcus Reichert, is about the innocence and the intimacy essential to making art that exists beyond the distractions of our consumerist society. It examines the spiritual presence of a work of art, both as a physical and an abstract expression of the artist's existence and empathy. Both public and private concerns are addressed with clarity and conviction as the contributing artists, historians, and philosophers express their innermost feelings on what makes art the powerful force that it is. A cooperative effort of rare originality.
