. "I want to make something of Impressionism that is SOLID and DURABLE."- Cezanne
. <3 impressions of everyday things, but much more analytical, scientific, paints with more STRUCTURE
. Impressionists= too fluffy- "They seem not to think too much about what they do and to be proud of it."
. PARADOX- 3D Illusionism vs 2D Anti- Illusionism: "In order to subjectify the objective world, I must be true to the 2D surface, but I must insert a sense of a 3rd dimension, solid and firm to concretize the subjectiveness."
. intelligent art- to paint subjective as if it were reality- wants to make it SOLID and DURABLE and LASTING- demands logic, order, clarity
. "If I am painting something real I must give it a volume, weight, depth, while also telling the viewer it is an image."
. this is THE REALITY- reality means nothing until we interact with it
. architectonic structure
. outside "nature is always the same, but of that aspect which appears to us, nothing lasts."= contemporary, fleeting
. sensory PERCEPTIONS- as we understand it
. tensions in warm vs cool colors and 3D architectonic structure (achieved by formal application of paint- instability of vision) vs 2D surface
. BETWEEN= still in the process of being perceived
. no center or perspective
. even if at rest, your eye, as it sees, is moving
. piece is incoherent and unstable= eye is always processing, observing, abstracting
. chasing after the impossible masterpiece
