Designing is not a profession but an attitude. Design has many connotations. It is the organization of materials and processes in the most productive way in a harmonious balance of all elements necessary for a certain function. It is the integration of technological, social, and economical requirements, biological necessities, and the psychological effects of materials, shape, color, volume and space. Thinking in relationships.,”Laszlo Moholy-Nagy”
Every culture that has lost myth has lost, by the same token, its natural healthy creativity. Only a horizon ringed about with myths can unify a culture. The forces of imagination and the Apollonian dream are saved only by myth from indiscriminate rambling. The images of myth must be the daemonic guardians, ubiquitous but unnoticed, presiding over the growth of the child's mind and interpreting to the mature man his life and struggles.
Friedrich Nietzsche - ”The Birth of Tragedy”
Of all the arts, abstract painting is the most difficult. It demands that you know how to draw well, that you have a heightened sensitivity for composition and for colors, and that you be a true poet. This last is essential.
We feel so many things when we encounter an everyday object. It can evoke empathy, nostalgia, desire, anger, disgust, and many other things. I see contractions in it and that is why I want to give it another life, another purpose, to change its soul. It's all about creativity, power and freedom.
Olivier de Kerten
I am not looking for perfection but my shapes and colors are bringing me peace of soul. They are the essence of my artwork because I believe of the supremacy of pure feeling in my creative art.
