art has only one real and overriding purpose in these times – to provide
a platform for creative imagination and to open up the intermediate worlds.
In so doing, art bears the responsibility of restoring the broken links
between the material and the spiritual. However, it is crucial that art
achieve this aim without resorting to false idealism, immature dualisms
and social rhetoric that still characterizes the meager state of modern
art. Art is about the inculcation of thought and imagination that is alien
to this entire age."
