day when I was drawing a young girl
I suddenly noticed that the only thing that was alive was her gaze.
|One does want to sculpt a living person, but what makes him alive is without a doubt his gaze.||The heads from the New Hebrides are true, are more than true, because they have a gaze.|
|I saw a man's eyes follow a woman,||
|and noticed that she resembled him--|
|One sees it as if it were disappearing, coming into view again, disappearing, coming into view again-- that's to say, it really always is between being and not being.||Not the imitation of eyes, but really and truly a gaze.||In fact, one never copies anything but the vision that remains of it at each moment, the image that becomes conscious.|
