Artistic creation is between imitation and invention. The image, being of the order of the sensitive, pushes the man towards the materiality and the touch, whereas the words, they, exceed these limits.
The impression left by an image is above all sensitive, the one coming from words is abstract, emanating from reason, from the soul, from the heart, from the interiority of being.
The image is a reference to the world of the imaginary presence and the imagination is based on the imaginary. The imaginary has a direct relationship with mirror science that reflects interiority in the system of contemplative wisdom that embodies the things created by the exaltation of clay and the Adamic dust.
