Art cannot result from sophisticated, frivolous, or superficial effects.
Through a painting we can see the whole world.
The ability to simplify means to eliminate the unnecessary so that the necessary may speak.
My aim in painting is to create pulsating, luminous, and open surfaces that emanate a mystic light, in accordance with my deepest insight into the experience of life and nature.
The art of pictorial creation is so complicated - it is so astronomical in its possibilities of relation and combination that it would take an act of super-human concentration to explain the final realization.
To worship the product and ignore its development leads to dilettantism and reaction.
Painters must speak through paint, not through words.
Creation is dominated by three absolutely different factors: First, nature, which works upon us by its laws; second, the artist, who creates a spiritual contact with nature and his materials; third, the medium of expression through which the artist translates his inner world.
Colors must fit together as pieces in a puzzle or cogs in a wheel.
In nature, light creates the color. In the picture, color creates the light.
A work of art is a world in itself reflecting senses and emotions of the artist's world.
Art is magic... But how is it magic? In its metaphysical development? Or does some final transformation culminate in a magic reality? In truth, the latter is impossible without the former. If creation is not magic, the outcome cannot be magic.
Every art expression is rooted fundamentally in the personality and temperament of the artist.
Being inexhaustible, life and nature are a constant stimulus for a creative mind.
It makes no difference whether a work is naturalistic or abstract; every visual expression follows the same fundamental laws.
