The essence of the ritual artifact, like magical
art, is its power of metamorphosis.It
invites to change, as it is pregnant with meaning.
object is metaphor, an instrument of magical practice which opens
a breach in the density of symbols, which gives we the wings we
need to ascend and transcend. It is a mirror which allows to see
through oneself, it is silence which allows to hear the transparency
of being, the sound of the moment. The essence of art that assumes
the reality of magic is its power of disruption, to crack open a
fissure in the consciousness of artist and onlooker.
Ultimate knowledge is of an æsthetic nature: it is the intuition
of mystery, of the power of creation. All genuine, honest work,
springing from the depths of the soul, aspires to reveal this mystery,
in words, sounds, colours or forms. All genuine art transforms,
is an instrument of mutation. All genuine art embraces mystery,
communicates with the sacred.
