Art collecting quote of the day

"...The image of the artist or the work as a messenger has [also] stayed with me...
In the works I seek –it might be a sculpture by Andrei Molodkin or a painting by Fabio d’Aroma– I find a clearly-expressed message about a complex subject, which I would find too hard to express verbally myself, but which touches me directly..."

- Karl Pernull, collector, Austria
