 A Quote from Giacometti { 1901-1966}

" It might be supposed that realism consists in copying a glass as it is on the table. In fact, one never copies anything but the vision that remains of it at each moment, the image that becomes conscious. You never copy the glass on the table; you copy the residue of the vision... Each time I look at a glass, it has an air of remaking itself.. that is to say its reality becomes uncertain. One sees it as if it were disappearing, coming into view again, disappearing , coming into view again.....that is to say IT REALLY ALWAYS IS BETWEEN BEING AND NOT BEING.... [ c. 1963-1964]
