John Graham’s System and Dialectics of Art

“Art in particular is a systemic confession of personality”

John D Graham – Two Sisters [1944]

Oil, enamel, charcoal and casein on composition board, 121.4 x 121.8 cm

“The abstract purpose of art is to arrest the eternal motion and thus establish personal contact with static eternity”

“The origin of art lies in human longing for enigma, for the miraculous, for expansion, for social communication, for continuity and consequently – life eternal.”

makes perfect sense to me
