"only cats are born soon”
…. that’s why kittens are blind
…. but their eyes will see!
Of course they will see, and they will die……….because
They are in the process of EVOLUTION.
Any Piece of Art is FIXED.
Do you remember in Goethe’s Faust:
When, to the Moment then, I say:
‘Ah, stay a while! You are so lovely!’     
We all want to live forever
And this is the ground the game is played on.
Thoughts are the coal which we heave into the furnace of the engine called “DEVELOPMENT”
In case, of course, it’s us who are the firemen (coal-heavers) of Time
I am not speculating on the subject of Abraham giving birth to Isaac, and Isaac….
Not at all. I am not interested, and I am not going to count the ships like Homer either.
Even if I know Who did What to Whom, When and Why… and so what?
If I am a sure shot that doesn’t mean that I necessarily should be a killer, a sniper or a hunter.
These are all the same for me…. And I am not interested in either.
However I know that there are enthusiastic fans, and I am very happy about it.
…. But, is this somehow connected with me?
…. Even in case this fan intends to kill me.
AND SO WHAT? … He is not the first one and not the last one.
We are playing different games on different grounds!
We even breathe different air!
And this is not Geography… THIS IS THE REAL LOCATION OF A PERSON!

Artist, Art Critic, Gallery Owner.   
Even their REALITIES differ!
though they speak about the same things.

… even their GOALS DIFFER.
