"If the painting would be water, binding conception, under which all paintings unite…The water’s surface as a place full of metaphors, where a condition begins to exist and another ends. Border between water and air, level of contact of two realms. There I see the paintings. For they are an in-between. Two media come into contact in them. As happens between air and water in the lakes and oceans, large and broad, like the long time that passed since living beings went on land, leaving the water, crossing this border. The water’s surface is the great painting of that place of age-old transformation."
