We all remember at our earliest stages of life, putting various geometrical shaped blocks into their corresponding holes. It was pretty easy to discover that some shapes simply did not fit into the others, so you had to try another one. By process of elimination, you learned that not all things fit together. You can't put a round block into a triangle hole. Nope. Not possible. But later, you began to question things. The question, "what if?" begins to stir your imagination.
So what does this have to do with Inter|Sekt? I suppose these blocks and shapes still exist everywhere throughout the fabric of our lives. Even with people. Some are round and some triangle and, well, you get the idea. When we sat down to come up with a name and a symbol to represent our vision, we wanted to bring together shapes that may not all fit together at first attempt, but through the common denominator of imagination, creativity and art, they fit perfectly. Like magic!
It's easy to come together when the similarities are obvious. But it is when the differences go deeper than the surface. When even our beliefs may differ, with that same sense of imagination, we can somehow still fit together. When that happens in the creative world, such beautiful things are possible. When we look at the relationship between artists like Andy Warhol and Jean Michel Basquiat, we see their obvious difference creatively on everything they created together. When you looked at the canvas, you could see what Andy painted and what Jean Michel painted, yet somehow the differences meshed together to form one piece of art.
We wanted to bring people together creatively. To put aside the anger and resistance to the differences that divide us and learn how to co exist. If anything, at least co exist on a creative level. We put the round block and the triangle block together to create a new shape in hopes we can see the magical beauty of creativity from ALL that exists. As the Beatles song says, "Come Together!"
That's what we hope to do. Come together. With something universal that transcends language or border barriers. That is our ability to create beautiful art. Thank you for joining us here to celebrate that which binds us as artists, the love, the desire and the absolute need to make art.

A great specter is looming over the art world: the specter of Inter|Sekt. For far too long we have watched the artists of our generation turned into a disposable commodity, bought and sold by the galleries, stifled in their expression by the tastes of the art consultants who purchase pieces on behalf of financially minded clients who want a "solid investment".
They have been amalgamated into schools, said schools are a device of gallerists and art historians to divide and conquer the creatives and free thinkers.
For we live in a nation which thinks itself to be free yet is not, they expect the same of their artists.
Our culture has been raped and plundered by the upper echelon, picked apart and sold by the same greed mongers who claim to be it's patrons. The tool which has most effectively stunted the growth of modern American art in particular is the clever indoctrination of this idea of schools to not only the art student but anyone whom even reads a brief survey of the history of art sees that it is broken up into these categorized schools; the philosophies of these various sects creates conflict, division, and ultimately destruction of the morale and submission to the established order. Thus rendering the creative spirit confused and useless.
This helps curb the rebellious spirit of the average citizen outside of the art world in other spheres of society.
Art history is a lie and galleries are dens of thieves!
Inter|Sekt is not destroying the schools or the galleries, we are simply showing you they were never real, at least not in a world outside of that constructed by academics to sell text books to art students.
The reign of the gallerists and art consultants is over when you want it to be.
From the ashes of the indoctrinated schools of every form of art shall arise The New World Creative.
