The world is an illusion: it's exactly the way …a beholder sees it… *…another detached beholder sees already a different world. * ...the world exists only in the mind of the beholder… * The more a beholder differs from other people the more unique world he's able to observe; ….the more perfect a beholder is …the more perfect experience he can get from his observation.
The meaning of modern art is the unity of "to Be, to Have and to Do". In other words, it is not enough to create something, it is important who created it. What matters is why he created it. The dynamics of creation are important. The act of art is important. Movement is life. Art is growth, it is flowering, it is fruiting, it is aggression, it is desire, it is a new taste, it is sex!!! A new feeling. New gesture. A gesture of courage, fearlessness and surprise.
Utopian literature claims that future people will make art and do science. Sadly, it’s an awful scenario. I can’t say anything on men of science for sure, but artists, all these poets, writers and painters …they are very peculiar people, to put it mildly and if, God forbid, all the people become like them, it will be a disaster, after which humanity will certainly die out.
Beauty is a manifestation of sexuality. Beauty is sexy. The real art is sex. When you look at real art, you want to reproduce, you are filled with inspiration and fruitfulness... you are literally pregnant with thought and filled with energy, like sperm.
Don't try to win someone else's competition. Understand, the best are your favorites. In other people's contests and ratings, the ones they like best win. Who loves whom has nothing to do with real beauty and perfection.
Creative people are mostly idealists, which is the sin of pride... Idolatry is a grave sin, in fact, it is an attempt to turn yourself into an idol. The devil thought he was the best, too. And went to hell. Therefore, creative natures in their mass are especially unhappy. Although, of course, there are those who, having broken through the bottom, fell from above...
Pattern thinking is when you can only dig a hole underground, and literal thinking allows you to dig tunnels in the air. After all, what is flight if not a banal art digger, turned into art vozduhom, digging tunnels in the air.
In any case, there should always be a fly in the ointment, as a symbol of the excess that can always be sacrificed if necessary. Flies need then that sacrifice is useful for business, and to sacrifice the beauty undesirable.
When you look at a barrel of honey with a spoon of tar, at first you think it's a spoiled barrel of honey and want to throw it away, that's what fools think. At the second stage of thinking you realize that the tar can be removed and then you will have a full barrel of honey-so think smart. In the third stage, you realize that a barrel of honey with a spoon of tar is beauty, where honey is a solvent, and tar is a poison, which is a small amount of medicine. Tar is the salt of life, the source of happiness, joy and reason. So think the perfect and enlightened. Enlightenment and attainment of the third level of truth requires humility.
