The Skipper

"Untitled" - Terry Nelson

Thank you for introducing me to Magritte..I did some reading on him. I especially like his painting "the Treachery of Images". Yes indeed, it is not a pipe.

And I love his quote that I pulled off the article in Wikipedia.. René Magritte described his paintings as "visible images which conceal nothing; they evoke mystery and, indeed, when one sees one of my pictures, one asks oneself this simple question, 'What does that mean?'. It does not mean anything, because mystery means nothing either, it is unknowable."

Will use this quote in my Art Appreciation class as right now we have a discussion on as to "what does art mean??"
