"Painting, we do not talk about it,
we do not analyse it,
we feel it."

Bernard Buffet

" Entered in painting as we got in religion,
he found a land of refuge, his workshop.
What from anxiety or serenity will keep him compagny ?
Again, a useless questions ...
We always talk too much "

Annabel Buffet - 1984

    There are some paintings that looks simple but yet it's very valuable. That is why art works are not meant to analyze but to feel its mood

    very true Bobby...
    a lot of people think that art needs to be explained ...
    it should be enjoyed for its visual presence :)

    I have always enjoyed art a little on the dark side. Which is definitely hard to tell by the subjects I choose to shoot.

    But, edgy and/or Gothic has always been of great interest to me.

    This is fabulous!!

    hi Jackie...
    yes fascinating work isn't it...
    maybe it's your other side calling out to you ....I think a lot of artists feel tempted to lash out and paint their inner selves which was obviously the case with Bernard Buffet...
    his clowns would appeal to you too Jackie :)

    Kim, I read on your bio that you liked Babette's Feast...I saw that movie perhaps 15 yrs ago (could it be that long?!) and remember every detail of it; something else in common :)
