This is a technique developed in the 1980s,
And is now being popularized;
It’s in the figure at the center of the eye.
In the Sistine Chapel.
In all regard unrealistic—
Is one of the most beautiful shapes
A painter has ever drawn.
For no understood reason
This form is far more beautiful—
More neutered of sexual appetite—
Therefore, with all regards,
It is far more beautiful than the eye
In the painting itself.
The blend of the real—
In this case, it is a perfectly realistic
Looking unreal, even more than surreal—
With this fantasy,
Is what I was waiting for.
With all frankness
But it is the figure in the eye…
That which is unrealistic…
Which truly captures—
And calls to mind—
The true aesthetic of art.
