"

Into my heart an air that kills
From yon far country blows:
What are those blue remembered hills,
What spires, what farms are those?

That is the land of lost content,
I see it shining plain,
The happy highways where I went
And cannot come again.

"
XL, A Shropshire Lad. Alfred Edward Housman, 1896
1971 Walkabout

My impulse has nothing to do with intellect or symbolism: it has only to do with dreams and longing, with hopes and desires, with passion.

Robert Hughes digging on art’s reactions to mass culture in 1980’s The Shock of the New:

"More than 40 years ago, a great Marxist critic named Walter Benjamin said that it was going to be hard, and maybe impossible, for any child raised in the howling blizzard of signals to find his way back into the exacting silence of a book. Benjamin died in 1940, but what he feared from radio and cinema and advertising came a thousand times truer with mass television. The box you are watching has done more to alter the direct discursive relationship of images to the real world - on which painting used to depend - than any other invention this century."
