Everyone wants to understand painting. Why don’t they try to understand the song of the birds? Why do they love a night, a flower, everything which surrounds man, without attempting to understand them? Whereas where painting is concerned, they want to understand. Let them understand above all that the artist works from necessity; that he, too, is a minute element of the world to whom one should ascribe no more importance than so many things in nature which charm us but which we do not explain to ourselves.
La música es la poesía del tiempo. La pintura es poesía del silencio. Un poema es un trozo de vida. La vida es un continuo asombro de maravillarse por estar vivo. *** Si lo que vas a decir no es más bello que el silencio: no lo digas. *** Alejandro Mos Riera, 2014
