The aim of art is to represent not the outward appearance of things, but their inward significance.
— Aristotle

All art is at once surface and symbol. Those who go beneath the surface do so at their peril. Those who read the symbol do so at their peril. It is the spectator, and not life, that art really mirrors. Diversity of opinion about a work of art shows that the work is new, complex and vital.

—Oscar Wilde
