Some artworks could not be explained in and of themselves by the intrinsic artistic qualities that they hold. The miracles inherent to the form itself are of course primal for the work of art. Any work of art disregarding that would be ontologically problematic. However, sometimes the constituent elements that make up that form and their genealogy stand out. The artist is either delving into the inner problematics of the work itself, redefining a problem deliberated earlier, or integrating the work at hand with the remote references of art with the details of the background that constitute art.
