Ernst Fuchs “A monument to the temporal within eternity”

THE TRANSFIGURATION OF THE RESURRECTED, ERNST FUCHS

THE TRANSFIGURATION OF THE RESURRECTED, ERNST FUCHS

“Unprepared though endowed with this strange gift for ‘seeing’, the visionary artist finds himself isolated – an outcast prone to unusual insights. He is, by nature, an outsider, a wanderer, a derelict. And yet, for a few brief moments between the Genesis and Apocalypse, he may enter into union with the Creator, bear witness to the timeless and eternal Unity that holds it all together.” A MANIFESTO OF VISIONARY ART

“A work of art is simply a monument to the temporal within eternity. Art alone can confer and transmit to other ages an enduring validity of what is trapped within its own era.” Ernst Fuchs
