Art means the nature of human in the living world.
Dead has no sense or creation.
Human will inevitably die one day.
Art is simplicity among complexity. Art can only survive in the living world and framed with impermanent.
"Zilch" is "the goal of art" or "the end of art".
You can think about it as you like.
There is one Buddha saying "ma nu that ta bar waw".
The meaning is "it is really very difficult to get human life."
It may not be so difficult to meet one nail from earth and one nail from heaven at one point. Our Buddha says to get a human life is more difficult than that.
To be human being is "difficult"
To create art is "difficult"
To have emotion is "difficult"
To get the end is "not difficult".
"the most difficult and the most greediest yearning which accompany with desirable life."
This is how I understand on art.
