Grains for new seeds
"Art is the supreme range, high, salutary and sacred; it blossoms. In the dilettante it produces only delight, but in the artist with anguish, it provides grains for new seeds."
"An art that suggests is like an irradiation of things for the dream, where thought also sets forth."
Odilon Redon: Confessions of an Artist
"With proclamations such as 'everything in art occurs through voluntary submission to the advent of the unconscious' and 'my originality consists in putting the logic of the visible at the service of the invisible', Odilon Redon (1840-1916) established a theoretical legacy which now places him as one of the key precursors of Surrealist thought."
