What if, while imitating nature, you removed its architecture? Is what is left, color? If so, what becomes of the dictates of light? Does not light become architecture? Does the study of perspective, a study that so dominated the Renaissance, become space, and if so, what space? Do the unintentional desires of this period’s masters provide for the abstraction in which they themselves could not engage, in the very chiaroscuristic details that they provided in their work? The fact is, we still read Aristotle, -for a demonstrative reason. The art of painting is beauty, an imitation of nature; one must look closely at its abstraction, e.g., at its etymology: Lat. abstrahere, ‘to draw away.’
