With no other wish than to go on until they meet. Slowly. With great unease, but with the certainty that all is guided by the ‘golden section.’ There is cellular arrangement. There is movement.

That impressed me a lot, and I began to paint that I believed in.”

Frida Kahlo

“His [Diego Rivera’s] supposed mythomania is in direct relation to his tremendous imagination. That is to say, he is as much of a liar as the poets or as the children who have not yet been turned into idiots by school or mothers.
