In Remembrance...

"The longer you look at an object, the more abstract it becomes, and, ironically, the more real."

"The picture in order to move us must never merely remind us of life, but must acquire a life of its own, precisely in order to reflect life."

Lucian Freud, 1922 - 2011

  1. Lucian Freud was/ is one of my favorites. I got to spend 3 months with one of his pieces on a daily basis (ah the luxury of being an art museum guard). I could look at his brushstroke and "gloppy" textural parts forever.
