Artist as Channel

The quote is Modrian, but the photo is Gaudi's architecture in Barecelona. I can not conceive of any way Gaudi did not channel his ideas for architecture, they are not angular, they melt, and slip down walls while fascinating the eye with detail, color and texture. This is the roof top of the house of Bones he designed for a wealthy client. Chimney tops that stand like soldiers and a jade pearled necklace with cross adorn the roof view. This mind, how the ideas flowed, was a mind of a genius.

The position of the artist is humble. He is essentially a channel.
Piet Mondrian
