Art & Imperfection

"(the) finite beauty or finishedness in the work always incomplete at some level, 'limping', like biblical Jacob, from the encounter with what cannot be named; achieved art always has 'that kind of imperfection through which infinity wounds the finite'.

(Archbishop Rowan, in his 2005 Clark Lecture quoting Jacques Maritain)
