    ARTIST STATEMENT

    HOMAGE TO INTEGRATION

    The child is conscious of space.
    Man is conscious of time.
    The artist is conscious of energy.
    The artist of the future will be called upon to create using industrial materials without altering their value, simply by transforming matter into the work of art.
    This gradual transformation is many- sided: it does not simply concern material organisation but also changes our sensory perceptions and restructures our inner space, with its propensity to evolve.
    The artist of the future will abandon the gesture of the painter and become a visual artist; that is why I no longer believe in the traditional concept of painting.
    Economics Event
    Structure Pure
    Non-Painting Transformation
    Non- Gesture Creation
