“For art sings of God, and ultimately belongs to him…”
“In the end, truth will be found in his work, the corporeal body of the artist. It will not fall away. Man cannot judge it. For art sings of God, and ultimately belongs to him.”
(Patti Smith, “Just Kids”)
Just finished reading, “Just Kids”, Patti Smith’s memoir of her life with Robert Mapplethorpe. A beautiful book, reflecting the evolution of a mystical relationship, and a passionate commitment to one’s own art.
