Music of the Eyes

"What prohibits me from treating my perception as an intellectual act is that an intellectual act would grasp the object either as possible or as necessary. But in perception it is 'real'; it is given as the infinite sum of an indefinite series of perspectival views in each of which the object is given but in none of which is it given exhaustively."

(1908 - 1961)

"Perhaps art is just taking out
what you don't like
and putting in what you do.
There is no such thing 
as Abstraction. 
It is extraction, 
gravitation toward a 
certain direction... 
It is nearer to music, 
not the music of the ears, 
just the music of the eyes."

(1880 - 1946)
