‘This is Cézanne’s genius: he forces us to see, in the same static canvas, the beginning and the end of our sight. What starts as an abstract mosaic of colour becomes a realistic description. The painting emerges, not from paint or light, but from somewhere inside our mind.’*
‘In shaping life beyond the Bubble, many visions will be needed.’**
Whilst we each see our world similarly enough to make everything we have made together work, we know that we each see our world significantly differently to make everyone’s contribution important – and the most complete picture only comes into view when we allow for the time dimension, including the future and the the past as well as the present.^
We have to admit, we don’t know what humans are capable of yet.
All of this means that it is important that you bring your seeing, and the art that emerges from how you see.
Life is coming into focus.
