Clearly abstract art often leans on feelings, both in the creative process and toward the theme. And comedy, though all about the laugh, is often most hilarious when facts and feelings collide. And any art attempting to capture the reality of a moment: a death, a broken dream, a miracle, a hope... these demand facts in order to a build a treadable bridge from soul to sound, canvas, screen or page.


Those of us who grasp the role of each in any given project will inevitably connect with the rest of us who lean one way more than the other.
