isn't it what art is all about...?

"isn't it that one wants a thing to be as factual as possible, and yet at the same time as deeply suggestive or deeply unlocking of areas of sensations other than simple illustrating of the object that you set out to do? isn't that what art is all about?"

francis bacon (the painter), quoted in an article on august sander in the summer 1980 issue of artforum, but does not footnote the bacon quote's source.
