Stillness strikes me



“Stillness strikes me. This bottle, this glass, a large stone on a deserted beach. These are motionless things, but they set in motion great movements in my mind…. Stillness makes me think of great spaces in which movements take place that do not stop at a given moment, movements with no end. It is, as Kant said, the immediate irruption of the infinite in the finite…. What I seek, in fact, is a motionless movement — something equivalent to what’s called the eloquence of silence or what St. John of the Cross meant by the words “mute music.””

Joan Miro
