Flannery O’Conner Blurb: The beginning of human knowledge

Another blurb from the book The Next Generation, a quote attributed to Flannery O’Conner where she says “the beginning of human knowledge is through the senses.”

“Everything has its testing point in the eye, an organ which eventually involves the whole personality and as much of the world as can be gotten into it.” Her comments are from the perspective of a writer, but hold just as much importance for visual artists.

Paul Nielsen founded The Aesthetic Elevator late in 2005. He owns a piece of paper, located somewhere in his house (not on the wall), stating that he earned a B.F.A. from the University of Nebraska around about 2001. While there, he studied studied architecture, graphic design and ceramics, graduating with a degree in studio art. Paul presently serves as communications manager for a small non-profit doing their print design and marketing. He spends as much time sculpting in his studio as possible — which is not nearly enough.

    Funny, she was my favorite authors back when I was in high school. Her books and short stories are still tops with me.
