The wonderful fundamental and a-referent painting of Marthe Wéry has a high sensitivity. The perception of it demands an open, unconditioned attitude: a slow process, as the opposite of today's quick and pre-cooked consumerism.
The work 'Toru' refers to a same kind of spirit and painterly approach. It's dedicated to the Japanese composer Toru Takemitsu.

'... painting is the creation of an analogy for the invisible and the unintelligible, which should become figure and should become accessible ... Good paintings are therefore incomprehensible ... They are incomprehensible so that they cannot be consumed and remain essential ...'
Gerhard Richter quoted in an essay by Benjamin H.D. Buchloh, entitled 'Richter's facture: between the synecdoche and the spectacle'
