“It is really the energy that I am interested in, not so much the subject of the image. As a still observer, I investigate the powers of nature, the psyche, the mind, will and love. The better i feel their properties and the more I am aware how they interact, the clearer and stronger appear the shapes and colours, the more convincing and alive the painting will be.” – Robert Arato
