“Painting is a tangible, sensory experience, an intense “being stirred” by the joy and the tragedy of man. A spatial experience which, nourished by instinct, becomes a living form. I try to capture this tangible reality in paint and in so doing give expression to my times.” – Karel Appel (1921-2006)
