Back to Human Condition 2003

The several manners I have used in my art must be considered as an evolution, or as steps toward an unknown ideal of painting […]. Different motives inevitably require different methods of expression”.

“When I paint my object is to show what I have found and not what I am looking for. In art intentions are not sufficient and, as we say in Spanish: love must be proved by facts and not by reasons. What one does is what counts and not what one had the intention of doing.”

Picasso Speaks, The Arts, New York 1923        * *                 

By believing passionately in something that still does not exist, we create it. The nonexistent is whatever we have not sufficiently desired.  [F. Kafka].
