Agnes Martin said that all art is about beauty. If art had to be summed up in one sentence, this would be a strong candidate. Perhaps another would be, all art aims to reveal something. And revelation is a good fit with the material we've collected for issue #26. Much is revealed, and beautifully so. And, as I said to one subscriber, this issue is also water-centric. How much we take this ordinary substance for granted, and how far it is from being ordinary. David Molesky considers water in its infinite changeability; Radek Skrivanek shows us the evaporation of the Aral Sea, water in its absence; Camille Seaman brings us water as Arctic and Antarctic ice in her exquisite photographs and, by implication, what its increasing loss means. And there's more.
