- I'm not quite sure we can talk about painting or music. This is a domain of different senses which words can't describe, that's why I'm using often the colors without names to translate the unknown sounds of my soul. I've named this process:"never-ending story" so if I stop working on the painting that's because someone tells me inside:"that's it" - and I never know why...

Paul Cézanne: Voglio dipingere la verginità del mondo!

  • Il disegno ed il colore non sono affatto distinti. Man mano che si dipinge, si disegna. Più il colore diventa armonioso, più il disegno si fa preciso.
  • Deriviamo tutti da Pissarro🎨.
  • Di Cézanne c'è n'è uno ogni due secoli!
  • Ho una sensazione lieve, ma non riesco ad esprimerla. Sono come uno incapace di usare la moneta d'oro in suo possesso.
  • Ho voluto legare le linee fuggenti della natura.
  • L'approvazione degli altri è uno stimolante, del quale talvolta è bene diffidare.
  • L'artista deve temere lo spirito da letterato che porta così spesso il pittore ad allontanarsi dalla sua vera strada: lo studio concreto della natura.
