An inspiring spiritual aesthetic suitably provides a stepping stone out of sensuality.
Through art, like through the fairy tale, we either distort reality or free the mind from material reality, showing a parallel mental reality. Art can be a representation of the world or a mirror that points us back inside.
Then the intention is not to make the human abstract but to make the abstract human, not to fall under the spell of an ideal but make the ideal ordinary, adding beauty to the natural world, rooting the vertical dimension.
We are looking for the point of intersection between the timeless and time, between space and form. The abstract is like giving form to space. The abstract can be trained to run parallel to the natural, material world – this is the taming, the softening of ideas. The perfect image can be too mental, imperfection is better, more human.
