Quotes l.jpg
Quotes. the Illusion of Reality.

Art evokes the mystery without which the world would not exist.

Everything we see hides another thing, we always want to see what is hidden by what we see.

My painting is visible images which conceal nothing; they evoke mystery and, indeed, when one sees one of my pictures, one asks oneself this simple question 'What does that mean'? It does not mean anything, because mystery means nothing either, it is unknowable.
