At least it hides the face partly. Well, so you have the apparent face, the apple, hiding the visible but hidden, the face of the person. It's something that happens constantly. Everything we see hides another thing, we always want to see what is hidden by what we see. There is an interest in that which is hidden and which the visible does not show us. This interest can take the form of a quite intense feeling, a sort of conflict, one might say, between the visible that is hidden and the visible that is present. René Magritte ( Hijo de Hombre )
¨La pintura abstracta abandona la piel de la naturaleza, pero no sus leyes. Permítame utilizar una palabra ‘grande’: las leyes cósmicas. El arte sólo puede ser grande, si está en relación directa con las leyes cósmicas y se subordina a ellas. Esas leyes uno las percibe inconscientemente, si no se aproxima externamente a la naturaleza, sino internamente. No solo hay que ver la naturaleza, hay que poder vivenciarla¨
We shall not bring back a single bit of gold or silver , not a gem, nor any coal or iron.[…] It’s no use. So, if you cannot understand that there is something in man which responds to the challenge of this mountain and goes out to meet it, that the struggle is the struggle of life itself upward and forever upward , then you won’t see why we go.
