HYBRID ARTS

 

                                      Parallel to a progression in church art

                                      From Catholic representation

                                      To theosophical abstraction,

                                      We find a degeneration of state art

                                      From Romantic representation

                                      To Expressionist abstraction,

                                      Preparatory to the more extreme

                                      Marxist purism of materialist light art.

                                      And yet, just as the State began by using

                                      Church means, viz. painting, in a secular context,

                                      So one can perceive the beginnings

                                      Of Centrist art via the use of state means, viz. light art,

                                      In a religious context of non-material pure abstraction -

                                      A distinction between Expressionism and Impressionism.
