Thought

The artist must retire if the work is to be revealed.
I am for an art that....

  • speaks for itself

  • has no meaning but has an audience

  • needs no introduction

  • sits in the here and now

  • is made for contemplation not decoration

  • knows that nothing lasts

  • changes its mind

  • can be recognised but not fully understood

  • ask you to believe your own eyes

  • shows little trace of its maker

  • focuses on the details to see the bigger picture

  • may be unveiled, but never fully revealed
