  • Catalogue Essay

    “The most astonishing quality of abstract painting is indeed its capacity to formulate what is still unknown or new- although everything refers to the canon of forms that exist in the world. The more beautiful and surprising a painting is, the more staggering are the associations it sets free… I believe in the richness and beauty of the human intellect and in its ability to understand the unknown and strange… Beauty through confusion; truth through collision!” (Daniel Richter as quoted in G. Romano, “Beauty through confusion”, Flash Art, Summer 2000)
