Is there one true answer to meaning?

Shona McKenzie, 18

The ever existent chase to discover purpose is what inspires both my art and my life. I like many others find myself consumed by the urge to discover and understand the one true purpose of life and the universe. This quest for knowledge has led me to believe that there is no single “true” way to find what I seek; instead there are infinite routes to feeling human. My painting explores this idea by portraying my belief that our universal longing for understanding is not a grey spectrum with no right or wrong; instead it is a beautiful and radiant spectrum of every colour and thought that we can dream of, all reaching to the unknown. If we will ever reach it I can not say, but I know that we will never stop trying.
