Art- Space, Time & Matter

Paul Cézanne , devoted a lifetime to studying the relationship of space, light and matter, he also eroded single point perspective by introducing the notion that a painting can have multiple perspectives points of view. Cézanne viewed his objects as if seen from the entire periphery of vision instead of restricting them to a detailed scrutiny by retina’s focal point.


A minute in the world’s life passes! To paint it in its reality,
and forget everything for that !
To become that minute , to be the sensitive plate ….
give the image of what we see,
forgetting everything that has appeared before our time…

– Cézanne on his work


Paul Cézanne
French Post-Impressionist Painter, 1839-1906

    cezanne has said: “i will amaze parisians with an apple” (je vais étonner les Parisiens avec une pomme.) and that he did.In his still life paintings, he gives more than one temporal moment at the same time.

    Time has always fascinated us; einstein and cezanne, both strive to reveal truths for which there are no words. http://www.redbubble.com/people/micheleroohani/art/257286-2-the-contemporaries
