” Why is there anything at all ? Why isn`t there just nothing ? ”
Art is a search for a meaning of why is there anything at all, instead of just nothing.
This is not like a scientific quest, a search for a primordial molecule, an undivided element, this is rather a search for a reason, an impulse from which everything must have proceeded originally.
Art looks for a time before the primordial unity got divided into multiplicity.
Art starts off from this multiplicity of the manifested world and tries to push back and back into the uncreated unity.
Through a profound intimation with “things as they are”, art cuts into appearances strait to the core, the heart of Reality.
What moves an artist is the relentless desire to know the truth.
