an art thought…


Art can warm even a chilled and sunless soul to an exalted spiritual experience.  Through art we occasionally receive-indistinctively, briefly-revelations the likes of which cannot be achieved by rational thought.

It is like the small mirror of legend: you look into it but instead of yourself you glimpse for a moment the Inaccessible, a realm forever beyond reach.  And your soul begins to ache….

Aleksander Solzhenitsyn
