Now THIS guy is a true synthesist.
Both views are adequate per person.
It all depends on how much you *want* to know. If mystery is more beautiful, then stay away from exposure. If you're a person like myself, rip the beautiful thing wide open, explore every crevice and niche, and walk away a different person.
But, do keep in mind, this is not about "art". Art is garbage, art is worthless, art is inconsequential. Look at the purity of the form. Look at the shape, the angles, the dimensions, the dimensionality. Look and perceive, *then* judge.
