"We all strive to become better artists technically, but it's the honesty of your own personal language coming through that really captivates the viewer," Guzik explains. "No other artist sees the world exactly as I do or feels what I feel- that story is mine alone to tell. When I start to ask myself questions as a person and a painter, try to understand why I'm drawn to a certain subject matter, and become vulnerable enough to paint what's inside of me, that other dimension starts to come through in my work. We can see this with the painters who have made it- they seem to be connecting with their subjects on a higher level and searching for ways to put their heart and soul into every brushstroke."¹
