On love and (really) seeing…
“Seeing things in nature radiate a beauty of their own is important to me.
How can one do this unless one really loves?
All good art, if seen and perceived simply and openly (without prejudice or preference), gives us the chance to experience this sense of otherness within the physical thing.
Most of us tend to take things too literally by way of sense and learned identification. I want to get at another aspect of experiencing, to see beyond the image, behind appearance. Taking things too literally stands in the way of this–like a veil.“
