Abstract (English)

"Reality is day-to-day living. The habitual and conventional are sought after, venerated and protected. Man retreats behind the barricades of rules and unrealistic absolutism, striving to protect his own welfare, no longer caring, or even wondering, about realities other than his own. Thus there is all the more need for descriptive images which make the mysterious credible and conjecture plausible. Artists who choose such a venture are limited only by the scope and integrity of their imagination and spirit. It is their task to remind us that life is both profound and perverse." - page 18.
