“In the dark ambiguities of time we need finesse, not geometry, to find some stumbling way”.

William Desmond
(Murdering Sleep, in The Tragic Discourse ed. R. Fotiade)


It is often proposed that a non-figurative artist renounces the
tangible and descends into himself, preferring his inner fantasies
to so-called external reality. However, it is a strict fidelity to the
so-called real, to life as it is lived, that enables such an artist to
dispose of models, of subjects demanding representation. Instead,
the life
that has been lived, touched, tasted, heard, remembered…
passes
through the artist and appears, on the other side, as art.

every utopia has its secret corner  
  Un tableau conduit harmoniquement consiste en une série de tableaux superposés, chaque nouvelle couche donnant au rêve plus de réalitié et le faisant monter
d'un degré vers la perfection. Baudelaire (Salon de 1859)
