Gerlovin Thought of Thoughts


The allegorical form of art can train and possibly awaken the mind with piercing glimpses into the inexplicable, expressing it in its visual meta-language. For that purpose, Zen masters used to employ their koans; similarly, we used our concepts. Art was always our thread of Ariadne that led us through the labyrinths of life: as in Russia, so in America. The running streams of ideas and forms in our art have been fusing in one organic union, whose balance is maintained as in a live organism. On every occasion, it was necessary to rise in consciousness above the limitations of the moment, to break free from the temporal aspects of events and to glance from the particular to the universal – in such case geographical localities become less significant than expected. The surviving idea of antiquity concerning the necessity of self-knowledge (nosce te ipsum) suggests that one has to gain the maximum independence from the collective mind, which entails another equally old rule that one has to carry in himself all that one needs (omnia mea mecum porto). Consequently, these parables were repeated in our life just like in lives of many others who traveled the same way before us.” (p. 7) (further...)
