Bonus Quote

Magicians Of The Mundane

Joseph Cornell

'Every serious work of art contains two different lonelinesses. The first might be called "plastic loneliness", that is the beatitude of contemplation produced by the ingenious construction and combination of forms, whether they be still lifes come alive or figures become still - the double life of a still life, not as a pictorial subject but in its supersensory aspect, so that even a supposedly living figure might be included. The second loneliness is that of lines and signals; it is a metaphysical loneliness for which no logical training exists, visually or psychically.'

Giorgio de Chirico
