Kandinsky on the Spiritual Element in Art and the Three Responsibilities of Artists

“Kandinsky admonishes, the notion of “art for art’s sake” produces a “neglect of inner meanings” — a lament perhaps even more “sad and ominous” in our age of consistent commodification of art as a thing to transact around — to purchase, to own, to display — rather than an experience to have.”

brainpickings.org “To harmonize the whole is the task of art.”

“Like when you grope for a specific expression
to match what you feel, but you can not phrase it...
I think I will always look for you
in every mismatched and incomplete masterpiece.”



Poem by Radwa Abdulazeem

Maybe it is a lexical lack
or you need to create a brand new word
to match that feeling inside of you.
Perhaps some feelings are never
put into words because they are more
eloquent when they are unsaid.
-Radwa Abdulazeem

Alain de Botton on Existential Maturity and What Emotional Intelligence Really Means

“The emotionally intelligent person knows that they will only ever be mentally healthy in a few areas and at certain moments, but is committed to fathoming their inadequacies and warning others of them in good time, with apology and charm.”

This is excellent:

Charlotte Wharton Artist Workshops

"Art demands something of you: your experiences, your memories, your imagination, and your heart transformed together with what you see in nature. To do otherwise relegates you to a recorder of facts. Putting yourself into your art is not easy. It takes courage, a self- knowing, knowledge, and the study of nature herself."

- Excerpt from "The Language of Energy In Art: Finding Your Vision", Charlotte Wharton
