Quote by Ian Hornak, SneedGallery Catalog
What I so like about Poussin and Cezanne is their sense of organization. Ilike the way in which they develop space and shape in architecturalcontinuity - the rhythm across their paintings. When I paint a landscape, Iget the greatest pleasure out of composing it. As I paint, I try to work outa visual sonata form or a fugue, with realistic images.
This quote reflects the admiration for the artistic styles of painters Poussin and Cezanne. The author appreciates the sense of organization in their work, specifically how they skillfully create a sense of space and shape that flows in a well-structured manner. The author personally finds pleasure in composing landscapes in a similar manner, attempting to create a visual composition akin to a sonata or fugue, using realistic images in the process.
The truth is that a vast restructuring of our society is needed if remedies are to become available to the average person. Without that restructuring the good will that holds society together will be slowly dissipated. It is that sense of futility which permeates the present series of protests and dissents. Where there is a persistent sense of futility, there is violence; and that is where we are today.
