The Confederation Centre Art Gallery recently added “Pair of Pears” to the permanent collection.
“I find in all the artists that I admire most a disturbing element, a distortion, giving evidence of a struggle . . . . In great art, this conflict is hidden, it is unresolved. All that is bursting with energy is disturbing – not perfect.”
“All good art has contained both abstract and surrealist elements, just as it has contained both classical and romantic elements – order and surprise, intellect and imagination, conscious and unconscious. BOTH SIDES of the artist’s personality must play their part.”
