Art Reflections
¡¡¡¡Perceiving is not understanding. Looking without reading. The brain deprives the visual sense of its freedom. Abstract art liberates one from the way of seeing configured during one¡¯s childhood. Abstract art assembles in order to see. From within to without, that is the direction of reading. An outward (collective) reading needs to be interpreted; hence it needs narratives, descriptions and representation. An inward (individual) reading does not need to be interpreted; hence it needs no narrative, description or representation. Art is to be seen and sensed. It is about creation and life. In the media age, visual morphine is no doubt also a great way of consoling a tired heart.Reading keeps the groups in balance. It unifies thinking, standards and values. Reading brings about the loss of seeing.Seeing is the original state, a window, and a door opened by the will to see.
