Queen of the Sirens

The Art of David Wiley

Artist Statement
Chagall once said that there is no great painting that does not contain poetry. What he meant by that has to do with the classical Greek concept of poetry, Aristotle’s concept. It seems that in the broad sense poetry is a mysterious entity like the soul, which inhabits all good works of art, whether it be painting, music, sculpture, theater, dance or poetry itself.  This element of poetry in art is as elusive as a rainbow and can only be detected and understood by a sixth sense developed over a long period of paying close attention to art and the galaxy of vibrations connected with it.
