About "Paradox 3"

Discussion of artwork
…but the mountain was diabolical as well as transcendent, or rather, it’s diabolism and it’s transcendence were one…
-- Salman Rushdie, Satanic Verses p. 303

From a distance this painting appears to be an ordinary landscape, and it is only on closer inspection that the images in the mountain and the sky become visible. This element of visual surprise is in keeping with our astonishment when we discover that our reality is not necessarily what we thought it was – what constitutes reality is in fact paradoxical. In the same way, what is in our mind may be different to what we expected or different to somebody else’s perspective.

Lyotard suggested that perhaps the human mind is the most complex combination of matter in the universe. “Maybe our task is just that of complexifying the complexity we are in charge of. Perhaps this is a materialist point of view, but only if we see matter not as a substance, but as a series of invisible and ungraspable elements organised by abstract structures. So we can be materialists today and in a sense maybe we must be. But within this horizon, the development of techno sciences induces a slow but profound transformation of our conception of the relationship between man and nature.” (1989:10).
