    "As hard as I tried, I could not feel any emotional link to it [a Swiss lake the artist was trying to paint]. All that beautiful landscape was just a colour postcard to me. The truth is, I can only paint the earthy landscapes of this land which is my own. I'm in love with this earth, this dust which I got to know on my trips to the desert".-Parviz Kalantari
