"If I could say it in words, there would be no reason to paint."
Author of stories ‘on hold’ and master of solitude, he is known for his everyday themes portraying American society. This realist American artist stands close to objectivity, lethargy, reflection. Silence governs both his urban and rural scenes. The cautious spectators watch without disturbing the characters, with whom they also share those ‘peaceful moments’ in which everything seems about to crumble in a ‘suspended’ way.
