Cultural Capital Triangle



“How Not to Paint” – Paul Kasmir

* – notes from Makoto’s lecture

“There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment. The one who fears is not made perfect in love.” – 1 John 4:18

Love is an impossibility if all we do is survive. We must acknowledge fear, guilt and shame. We seek what is impossible. Without faith it is impossible to create.

“Immature poets imitate; mature poets steal” – T.S. Eliot, The Sacred Wood

Stealing in art is to incarnate the greater master in your own and requires love. Imitation is based in fear.

Art is a faithful way of knowing the world and each person has their own unique path to that journey.
