Feelings for and of the World

Following from the previous post, landscapes are beautiful to the extent that our feelings live there, and I love landscape and landscape art. But the art that is willing to die is closer to the body—not just content to look at the world, it wants to feel it from the inside. The eroticism of landscape art is diffuse, it’s an atmospheric feeling, and that’s why it’s so far sublimated in the artists that Riley mentions. In my kind of art the erotic is always present, it has to be—it comes along with death, which simply means evolutionary change.
