“Works of art are meant to be lived with and loved,
and if we try to understand them,
we should try to understand them
as we try to understand anyone —
in order to know them better,
not in order to know something else.” 

— William H. Gass, Fiction and the Figures of Life

When Opposites Are One   Leave a comment

Looking back at my December 2013 posting, I decided it was time to Pieter Bruegel painting. — kenne

Becoming is Superior to Being

“The Hunters In the Snow,” oil painting on wood by Pieter Bruegel

This work of Pieter Bruegel is a favorite of many people, but most know of his paintings only because of this painting, “Hunters in the Snow,” a scene appearing on many Christmas cards. His paintings are beautiful because of his compositions make one of opposites, based on Eli Siegel’s principle of aesthetic realism: “All beauty is a making one of opposites, and the making of one of opposites is what we are going after in ourselves.”


opposites are one

composing yesteryear’s coldness
stretching through time
standing still in the moment

searching the unrestricted
working with opposites
reassuring in sameness

emphasizing divergence
promising order
pleasing to self
