The beautiful is in nature, and it is encountered under the most diverse forms of reality. Once it is found it belongs to art, or rather to the artist who discovers it.
Painting is an essentially concrete art and can only consist of the representation of real and existing things.
Fine art is knowledge made visible.
I am not one who was born in the custody of wisdom; I am one who is fond of olden times and intense in quest of the sacred knowing of the ancients.
I hope to live all my life for my art, without abandoning my principles one iota.
