The world, God and the absence cannot be represented. It is stronger than an interdiction: this has to do with incapacity.
Painting cannot copy reality but by falsifying it. This incapacity, once understood, becomes the source of all creativity’s forces.
The signs do not resemble the world, and yet, they are the only ones capable to contain the figure and mark its limits.
It is significant that among all signs, the letters of a very ancient alphabet, the Hebrew Aleph-Beit, have the power to signify, to mark the Divine Secret.
