An Arising fine art
"...Art is not elaborate technique,
and art is not the quest of
beauty. It is the vanguard of life,
scouting, pioneering, reaching
into the unknown, into that
which is not yet amenable to
law. It is the thrill of wonder, the
gaze from a peak in Darien, the
road to Xanudu, the dim Ultima
Thule, the solemn joy of
voyaging through strange seas
of thought alone. It is a venture
beyond organized truth, beyond
acknowledged virtue, beyond
recognized beauty, and ...
beyond the dreary dailiness
which usurps the name of life.
Art, thus interpreted, spurns
patterns, standards, values:
words which of their very nature
are essentially philistine. Thus it
cannot exist save for its own
sake only. Whoever looks
primarily to the true, the good, or
the beautiful, with art merely as
a mode of approach, is turning
his back on the reality of
"To arrest, for the space of a
breath, the hands busy about
the work of the earth, and
compel men entranced by the
sight of distant goals to glance
for a moment at the surrounding
vision of form and colour; of
sunshine and shadows; to
make them pause for a look, for
a sigh, for a smile -- such is the
aim, difficult and evanescent,
and reserved only for a very few
to achieve. But sometimes, by
the deserving and the fortunate,
even that task is accomplished.
And when it is accomplished --
behold! -- all the truth of life is
there: a moment of vision, a
sigh, a smile -- and the return to
an eternal rest."
