René Magritte

“If the dream is a translation of waking life, waking life is also a translation of the dream.”

Attempting the impossible.

… they evoke mystery and indeed when one sees one of my pictures, one asks oneself this simple question ‘What does that mean’? It does not mean anything, because mystery means nothing either, it is unknowable.”

Elective Affinities.

“Everything we see hides another thing, we always want to see what is hidden by what we see.”

Dangerous Liaisons

      “The mind loves the unknown. It loves images whose meaning is unknown, since the meaning of the mind itself is unknown.”

I am because someone dreams me…

…. a man who sleeps and dreams and sees me acting, living and moving – and who is dreaming at this moment as I am speaking to you. When he dreams, I awake to life; when he awakes, my existence vanishes. I am a whim of his inspiration, a creation of his mind, a visitor in his nightly fantasies.
