Art is one of the sources through which the soul expresses itself and inspires others. But to express art thoroughly, one must have the inner emotions opened thoroughly. (Meher Baba)
To look at art and not feel something on an emotional level is quite impossible. Art is a direct communication between man and man without relying upon words. To use art simply for aesthetics is quite a shame. One of my favorite painters of the 20th century. His work has a great emotional impact on the viewer.
