The Source Code

Waiting for Rorschach

This observation is relevant for both the artist and the art appreciator.

The artist may ask: What is the inherent value of my art?

The art appreciator may ask: Is this art or not?

But, what do these questions mean? How can you appreciate the end product without comprehending its creation?

How did that apple, chair, face, doggie, name your object, get onto the canvas? From what source did that abstract painting reveal itself? Was it a product of conceptualization and planning, or alchemy?

The answers to these questions unveil all—that is, if you have the fortitude to find the elusive curtain and see what’s behind it.
