“Merrill believed, with Marcel Proust, that the only true paradise is a lost paradise. Love is not fully itself until it is lost, until it becomes memory, then becomes art.”
- J.D McClatchy.
Below, some snippings from The Sight of Silence, a book of the watercolours of John Cage:
Non-intention isn’t itself a process, but a purposeful decision to avoid controlling the way a work of art’s form and/or content is determined - Ray Kass.
Chance is not viewed as the enemy of rational structures, but accepted as evidence of a wider orderliness of nature beyond human control or understanding - David J. Clarke.
My responsibility became: not making choices, but asking questions - John Cage.
My work is not self-expression, but tends toward self-alteration - John Cage.
Good Luck to Mr Greg for his grand unveiling later today! It will hurt….
