the miniscule space between...


"the aesthetic world of the visible - form, colour - is born and exists in the miniscule space between the object and the pulsation of our souls... the visible starts from the invisible, from the revelation of the hidden meaning of things, of their wonder, of their magic... that is why logical explanation cannot attain to this revelatory action. on the contrary, would it not be more fitting for the explanation to partake of the essence of the inexplicable? here, it is truly the case that the dark and the obscure, more than the clarity of logic, create an atmosphere of initiation for those who posses the innate capacity to feel and to understand"

yes, i will have to post more pikionis. i became a huge fan spending time with a small church he designed in athens, which i was lucky enough to do an installation next to. there's not a ton in english but i've got several books on him with gems.
