"to make their eyes open" — Josef Albers
Albers would repeat versions of the phrase again and again over the years, never deviating from the conviction that teaching art was (is) not a matter of imparting rules, styles, or techniques, but leading students to greater awareness of what they are seeing and doing.” — Frederick Horowitz and Brenda Danilowitz
what does it mean to see?
so if I do begin to see, then what?
depends on what I see and intend to do or say in regards to what I see or what I hope others will see. SEE!
and yet hands do not always obey what is seen and to be seen; they must gain experience through exploration of material and form and they must practice. and the hands to, if listened to, may open the eyes in the same way strolling feet cultivate an idea to fruition.0
