Artist has a
responsibility in front of his fellow man. In an epoca axis such as ours,
where spiritual values are constantly oscillating, where civilization is
threatened with death, were we are invaded with an obsession for profit,
gain and pleasure which condemns its own feelings of art, he should
pass between them and their slogans. The artist is the last to know that
certain truths neither value money or priveleges - They are without price.
Because we are in a century of speed and consumption, we should say: Watch
the wheat grow, Observe all of life. Only the artist, cannot remake
humanity, but at least should know through his silent search that the luck
of everyone plays itself out here and there in all parts.
Alfred Manessier. Artist.
intent of my artistic expression is not to intentionally communicate a
message through my art but only to tell a spontaneous idea or feel from my
soul, in the style nearest to Naif (naives)
and also through modern expressionism.
