Abstract: The painter's reality hinges around that which is perceived through the senses, the intellect acting as a flux in merging responses to that which is perceived and translating these into a synthesis, the essence of which is visual reason, A work of art is not the outline or the graph of art as an activity; it is art itself. It does not design art; it creates it. Art is made up, not of the artist's intention, but of works of art. The most voluminous collection of commentaries and memoirs, written by artists whose understanding of the problems of form is fully equalled by their understanding of words, could never replace the meanest work of art.1
