Kennedy Malin — a fool's paradise 

a fool's paradise

Paintings or sculpture are self-contained statements about the nature of human existence in all its essential aspects. An ornament presented as a work of art becomes a fool's paradise, in which tragedy and discord are ignored and an easy peace reigns.

Rudolf Arnheim, Art and Visual Perceptions 1954


Now all appearances are reversable ... only at the level of appearances are all systems fragile and vulnerable ... meaning is vulnerable only to enchantment.

Jean Baudrillard, Seduction 1977
