And thank you all for your work on the site

While dualities such as object-subject are philosophically flawed they retain an everyday meaning and wisdom; the tension maybe in the in-betweeness of subject and object that is forever oscillating.

If we keep in mind the objectified nature of the work of art we may get closer to its truth, although lets drop the word ‘truth’ and go for furthering a more meaningful and useful engagement. This itself, needs to be kept open to revision lest we fool ourselves to closing down meaning through a misjudgement of temporality.

Such a website, that stimulates debate about abstract art is required at this time and I hope something can continue.
