...... The sea is above all, like a
painting, including waves and
ripples or smears and lumps,
mere surface. If you want to get
below that, you have to get into it.
But the sea can also be simplicity
itself. One plane, two planes, three
planes. Blue area, white area,
gray area, black area, brown area.
And she has a perfect line.
Therefore it is not difficult to paint
the sea. Anyone can create the
illusion of a third sky, a third sea
and a third beach on paper or
canvas. There is as little drawing
or painting ready as the sea.
That is why it must be terribly
difficult to paint the sea. She is
well-known, over-loved, broken
and is ready for cooking every
season in four-colour printing.
The sea is the largest consumer
item in the world.
