the artist as stroke, line, colour, dot …

New at the artisans’ galleryBerry Mank


Berry Mank: 2713


With the brush rooted in his heart, the artist finds himself in a moment’s tension, transformed into a stroke, line, colour or a single dot.  Everything, according to the artist, pivots around the possibility to express the pure naked gesture, without interference of the intellect.

Once an old master said that the true line is dictated by the spirit and not by the brush; in this way painting becomes a form of meditation, a prayer to celebrate the mystery of life.
