Art evokes the mystery
without which the world
would not exist.

...mystery as in "wonder" and "awe" or mystery as in "what were you doing on the night of Friday the 15th at 11:32pm?"

The photo makes me think the latter...maybe it's the sinister eye contact...

I would say both. But the common denominator between art and the world is the creative effort of unfathomable beings. I'm not real sure what Magritte had in mind. But I thought he looked pretty cool in that photo.

Art as delight in fuzzying the clarity and art as investigation that unravels the muddle. It's a paradox I like.

In the words of G & S (not S & G): "A paradox, a paradox, an ingenious paradox."
