‘I have an idea that the only thing which makes it possible to regard this world we live in without disgust is the beauty which now and then men create out of the chaos. The pictures they paint, the music they compose, the books they write, and the lives they lead. Of all these the richest in beauty is the beautiful life. That is the perfect work of art.’

W. Somerset Maugham, The Painted Vail

‘The artist becomes responsible for an event she didn’t produce, and by joining in and transforming it into an artistic working through, the original event of the other or the cosmos, which can be traumatic for the other or for a world, becomes a source of meaning and knowledge within a joint psychic sphere and for whoever can join this sphere immediately or later on.’
Ettinger, Bracha

‘The creative taking place of encounter-events I would say. A sense of danger,mixed up with immense joy, immediately started to build up, and with it, an intensive appeal to transform the moment and give it a new meaning, or a memory as you say,based on the unconscious of the voyage itself’.
Ettinger, Bracha.

‘I don’t think about feminism when I’m in the studio. When I’m in the studio I’m thinking about my painting, and I’m thinking about what that painting means to me and how it resonates…then, I want to take it out into the world. When I go to take it out into the world, that world has to be ready to receive it. And that’s when I need my feminism.’
