Lot Essay

"I feel that the only thing that really matters in art and in life is to go against the tidal wave of literalism and literal-mindedness – to insist on and live the life of the imagination. A painting has to be the experience, instead of pointing to it. I want to have and to give access to feeling." – David Salle
