“Art affirms all that is best in man – hope, faith, love, beauty, prayer…”

by Protecting Veil

“Art affirms all that is best in man – hope, faith, love, beauty, prayer… What he dreams of and what he hopes for… When someone who doesn’t know how to swim is thrown into the water, instinct tells his body what movements will save him. The artist, too is driven by a kind of instinct, and his work furthers man’s search for what is eternal, transcendent, divine – often in spite of the sinfulness of the poet himself.”

from Sculpting in Time: Reflections on the Cinema

Andrei Tarkovsky (1932-1986)
