On the whole, the monied world, which could change this world into a paradise, consists of the same mindlessness and ignorance which enslaves the poor. The monied world seldom or never looks at art. And the few who do, generally speaking, need advisers. But no one likes to be told they are ignorant. Will there ever be a time when understanding will be loved for its own sake, by everyone, and art truly public and inspiring? Undoubtedly, money is the root of all evil in a cut-throat society.

To omit 'thought' from art is to sterilize it. The difference between a philosopher/artist and a politician: One could talk to Nietzsche or Popper or El Greco or Van Gogh and agree or disagree with them. One could not talk to Hitler or Stalin the same way. This artist condemns politics entirely.

Were it not for Politics 'freedom of thought' could never be viewed as a threat.

I knew you would have to finish The Ring of the Nibelungen. You've done a great Job. I love it.

An admirer. US of A. 



I've nothing better to say than this: These paintings are GREAT! It's a pity the world is turning its back on interesting and original art and only ops for fashionable 'art'! And no-one can deny that your art is original! It is the most original art I know. Where do you get your inspiration from?

 The Ballad for Desdemona is thrilling. I wish you

 hadn't sold it already!

Your new painting L'apres Midi D'un Faune #2 is beyond words. Why is it that those who love art never have the money to buy any, when those with money seldom have a passion for art.

If I had the money I'd buy many of your great paintings.
