into a tender mode

Psychoanalysis and art. An artwork has a relationship with two persons: the creator and the viewer. The creator actually makes a self portrait with every painting, no matter what her subject. The viewer sees the resulting artwork through a veil of his own life experience and what is lacking there. According to Jaques Lacan, vision has more to do with desire than with optics.
