"Chapter 9 - The Human Voice" Matt Gauthier, Charcoal on Paper, 2017. "The Human Voice CH. 9 “One of the quotes that really stood out to me in this chapter was “you have to see that the universe is not formless and dark throughout, but awaits simply the revealing light of your own mind”. I turned my interpretation of this quote into a charcoal drawing of the well known entrepreneur, Steve Jobs. The geometric mark making that surrounds his left side represents that space where I am now as an artist and that negative space is where I strive to be, and where he has gotten (the revealing light). Steve Jobs found that revealing light and because of that, a lot of people have cell phones, mp3 players, and laptops. This quote is really inspirational to me, being someone who has not developed their own style yet as much as I would’ve hoped to. That revealing light is where everyone is trying to get to. Like being lost in a cave and looking for the little beam of light, which would lead one to their escape.” - Matt Gauthier
