Arthur Yang

Knowledge of the world through the word is literature. Through experience is science. Gastronomes perceive the world through taste. The great Noses perceive it through smell, musicians – through sound and rhythm. Abstract painting describes visual experiences, inexplicable by means of familiar images or words. We all learn the planes of reality through our own instruments. And perceiving them, we create new ones!
