Water and land. With Klee as prompter, I am attempting to depict their relationship with point, line and surface. Looked at from the land, the sea is just a horizontal surface on which the elect can even walk, and the volume of which is quite accidental. Its depth is induced by fear.


I accept the touch of water and land as a fact.


City on the water, the reversed picture of which rocks in the embrace of the bay, could remind the not very careful observer of a cut circle. But the sea belongs to the city up to that line with which the circle is closed, or poetically: to that which bounds the square from the water. The waterfront always represents the interior façade of that same square to which it belongs.
