Each part has a dependence upon the others; they compose one idea in his mind. That idea has nothing to do with anything that can be put into words. A group stands without relation to the figure of God. They have come together then because their lines and colours are related, and express some view of beauty in his brain.
As for writing - I want to express beauty too - but beauty (simmetry?) of life and the world in action. Conflict? - is that it? If there is action in painting it is only to exhibit lines; but with the end of beauty in view. Isn´t there a different kind of beauty? No conflict.
I attain a different kind of beauty, achieve a simmetry by means of infinite discords, showing all the traces of the mind's passage through the world; achieve in the end, some kind of whole made of shivering fragments; to me this seems the natural process; the flight of the mind. Do they really reach the same thing?
