This issue Plum Ruby explores personal visions in art. The artists presented here each share a commonality in that they all draw upon their own life experiences to create images that may translate into a shared experience for the viewer. When one looks at the works of Rice, Dunlap and Rentzepis the initial reaction may be one of whimsy, but once explored deeply, the works immerse the viewer in the personal world of each artist. The personal vision in art is a common theme in latter twentieth century and early twenty-first century artwork. It has been said that everything has been done in terms of visual art; if this is true then personal vision may be all that is left in the world of art. However, personal vision provides us all with infinite possibilities, so there is much left to explore.
