Kiefer on Art

“All of painting, but also Literature, and all that goes with it, is merely a process of going round and round something inexpressible, round a black hole or crater whose centre one cannot penetrate. And those things one seizes on as subject matter, they have merely the character of pebbles at the foot of the crater — they mark our a circle which, one hopes, draws ever closer to the centre.”

Anselm Kiefer, Works on Paper (1999)

Nuremburg, Anselm Kiefer (1982).
