About this Quote

In this quote, Eduardo Chillida specifies art as something that is received by a person and functions as a barrier between themselves and an unyielding observer. This suggests that art is a powerful force that can both safeguard and expose a person's inner self. It acts as a medium through which one can express their thoughts, feelings, and experiences, while also being a reflection of their true self. The phrase "the work" could refer to the physical symptom of the artist's production, but it could likewise represent the procedure of producing art itself. In general, Chillida's words highlight the profound impact that art can have on both the artist and the viewer.
