Theories Have Been Outgrown

Jul 11 005

My quote for today is from legendary American artist, Arthur Dove:

“Theories have been outgrown.  The means is disappearing, the reality of the sensation alone remains.  It is that in its essence which I wish to put down. It should be a delightful adventure.”

To engage all the senses and not rely purely on sight produces work of exquisite sweetness.  This rests at the heart of the Zen arts.
