Searching For The Meaning Of Art

Why do people seek out art? “We look at art in order to search for something — it gives us a particular place where we can search for something that we can’t see. There’s always something beyond the frame — not just what we see but what we don’t see — and it’s what we don’t see that we often desire. It’s quite mysterious. All art is a way of trapping something or freezing something about human desire.”
