Example text

Seen yet not seen, there yet not there, present yet not present, the line is ambivalent. Even in its purely mathematical form, the line is enigmatic: it can outline and thus determine Freeing the Line 25 a geometric shape, and yet, since it has no breadth, since it has only the one dimension of length, it is, in the strictest sense, invisible. In outlining the things of the perceptual world, the line is similarly ambivalent; its character, its very mode of visibility, of presence, wavers indecisively between opposites, and yet it is decisive, indeed imperative, for the appearing of things.

There is a landscape but there are also colors. The colors are obviously painted. There are traces of brushstrokes, which are easily to be recognized as such, not the least by some free space between them; the painter has not covered the entire canvas. As it seems, he has not tried to conceal the paint, in order to give it the appearance of color as it could be experienced in the real world. The painting is not illusionary; it could not be used as a trompe l’œuil. The landscape does not have the spatial depth that it could be expected to have in order to represent the space of the real world.

The colors, their tones and nuances, form lines; they become things, rocks, trees, without the artist’s intention (Gasquet, 1978, p. 109). The artist does not compose the painting in orientation to a schema. Although there are trees and rocks before his eye, he does not contemplate them in their determinate being, but rather in the totality of visual appearance. In translating this appearance to his canvas, he lets the trees and rocks and the other things appear. They appear in their primordial appearance.
