Many steps have been taken
days following each other
years passed
remembering remained until today.
Names, again and again,
names that formed and
stimulated to think
Gerd Arntz, Käthe Kollwitz,
the social meaning
of graphic art.
The landscape of Hercules Seghers
stripped and brought back
expressiveness of line and emptiness.
Words of Federico Garcia Lorca,
Sɵren Kierkegaard connected –
by me - with Alberto Giacometti.
His walking man, simple
longer, thinner,
who learned about space,
putting steps,
step by step.
