Twentieth century painter and co-founder of the cubism movement alongside Picasso, Georges Braques stated that “in art there is only one thing that counts: the bit that cannot be explained.” Unlike science and math, which also try to explain the unknown, art is unique in that it can explain what we don’t know by having us experience and feel the unknown.
