The artist has a highly developed sensitivity, I would say esthetic sentiment. His magical stick doesn’t hit, but fondling, gives existence to non-existent, life in inanimate, creates the pulchritude! He becomes invisible explorer of everything in the universe. He knows how to discover that something that it is often nothing, but that’s exactly the characteristic feature of his subject.
