Esoteric Klee – Goethe – (and me) part 2

Klee, as a lover of lines, started drawing them sometimes in an ephemeral way, sometimes not.

Klee’s creativity later on included “parallel figurations”; works he did during his “inner circle“: which means those works that are symbolic and universal in their intent and what I would name Esoteric Art: when the picture is conceived as a code, as an interpretation of the world through symbols. About this, Goethe said: “When a thing is not a thing yet is a thing, an image condensed in the mirror of the spirit and yet identical with the object”.

Painting this “radiating parallels” with lines both continuous and discontinuous one can say they’re also related to the principle of imitation in musical composition.


Both, my inspiration. Bellow
a little painting I finished last night .
