What about painting?

It came to me as a mean to say these “important things” you don’t speak about. These things can’t be said clearly. They are literally unspeakable. They become blurry and they eventually vanish when analysed.

They can be expressed only by allusion.

Le bord de mer

(The Seaside)

Seemingly figurative painting of Brittany’s coast. One can see the sea, the sand, a black sky with birds. A red sail boat?
