You're right--he wanted art to be the way to come up with new ways of seeing the world, new metaphors to break through all the familiar lies. The idea was that the man of intuition/art would bring a new brightness or redemption or spark. As far as I remember, it's as you say, he thinks everything is deceptive. Art isn't more so, it's less so, potentially. It would be bad though if it were conventional art, reinforcing instead of subverting, because art is powerful in the way it convinces.
