Lot Essay

“Over and done with the mystical jubilations of the physical world: I have become nauseated by it and no longer wish to work except against it. It is the unreal now that enchants me. I have an appetite for non-truth, the false life, the antiworld; my efforts are launched on the path of irrealism. In the paintings I now plan to do there will only be aggressively unreasonable forms, colours gaudy without reason, a theatre of irrealities, an outrageous attempt against everything existing, the way wide open for the most outlandish inventions.” Jean Dubuffet
