“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.

"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
