Making Visible

Art does not reproduce the visible, but makes visible [….] because the artist observes the things nature places before his eyes, with a penetrating gaze. And the deeper he penetrates, the easier it is for him to shift the viewpoint from today to yesterday, the more he be able to fix in his mind, in place of a defined image of nature, the unique, essential image, that of creation as genesis.”
