Be not mysterious but in contact with mystery!

The Artist exists because the world is not perfect!

Art is born out of an ill-designed world.

Through the image is sustained an awareness of the infinite: the  eternal within the finite, the spiritual within matter, the limitless  given form. (A. Tarkovsky)

In the beginning was the word. Why Papa? (the little boy, Stalker, 1979)

Tarkovsky was not a mysterious man but a man who was in contact with mystery. He is one of those who dares to challenge himself to explore unknown ways that put aside skepticism and discouraging rationality. (Erlan Josephson about A. Tarkovsky)
