From Kanjiro Kawai thoughts:
Only through unrelenting work can the true of art come, in which beauty has been achieved unconsciously and effortlessly.
Work does not seek beauty, Beauty follows work.
There are new shapes on all sides of us. We have only to reach to find them.
The unknown self is revealed through the work of the hands and the body, and is that unconscious element in every man that prods him on to new achievements.
We are not working alone. Who is moving this hand of mine?
We do not work alone. It is the fire itself that completes the piece.
The capacity for expression and creation is in every one , but not all of us realize this. We work and produce in spite of ourself. The unknown self drives us always.
Any work of art belongs to everyone, because it is whatever each person sees in it.
