The purpose of art…

“The purpose of art is to impart the sensation of things as they are perceived and not as they are known. Art exists that one may recover the sensation of life; it exists to make one feel things, to make the stone stony.” -Victor Shklovsky

  1. Yes, siree and I read today from The Spiritual Peacemaker, “We see
    the visible, but not the invisible.” We see but don’t see with our hearts. An Artist feels and sees deeply differently, often with vision.
    I like Victor.
