An Odyssey belongs necessarily to the existence to be able to understand the laws of the life. To go in heaven of the God, it is not enough to obey the apprenticeships of people. Among the rest, every person has the function of a messenger, a facet, to take note the aspect of life under the magnifying glass to get to know the consequences.
I have been kissed as a free artist by
which is the fact why it is hard for me to define a main focus in my work.
I enjoy the luxury of being able to spend my whole life to the creative forces.
For me it is not clear why I have deserved this privilege.
Vita – min - B

The facial sense gives me the perception of a visible world
allows me examination and knowledge and is at the same time
the entrance to psyche - soul -
My soul is an artist and her tools are
my eyes - my imagination - my hands - and the resonance with the universe.
What has formed me to the creator of illusions?
Why and how could I develop to an artist?
There aren't many events kept in my mind.
Maybe I have to owe it to the providence or the coincidence,
that I saw the world differently after an ocular operation and getting the wrong glasses.
By this, i was able to discoverthe world from a new prospect.
Houses, persons, cars - everything was upside down-
Often I was admonished to look through these glasses-
my clamour was so long suppressed till my objections were silenced
and I had to learn living with this interference-
The world as those is reversible and nothing is like it seems.
Very early I have felt mysrelf drawn to art and developed my own perspective
These aspects in combination with each other
also caused a lot of problems.
At the beginning of the second year at primary school
I started to fake the signatures of my parents,
in order to avoid (amoung the rest) the discomfort of an attemp to deception.
I have never been able to honor the jugglery of human authority.
On the contrary.
It provokes me to contradiction,
and I cannot ignore the fact that
this has developed a very unconventional way for me.
Conflicts with the authorities of this society
have shaped unambiguously my present life.
Every controversy increased my disobedience
and loud protest stirred the conflict in me.
Authority is the art of the conviction.
Authority cannot be requested.
Authority is earned.
It is an honoring
It testifies of high human qualities
It is not documented.
It is extremely swift.
The emperor's new clothes
Do experts of the art market need documents and reports to hide
the emperor's new clothes?
Or are they absolutely incapable to judge without securitization?
I can bring no respect to these opportunists-
In effect I only pile up a wall of opposition.
Why I should I be on the recommendation of an art connoisseur
forced to make a pilgrimage to a museum to look at fat
and small, rancid sausages?
Garbage containers have significantly more to offer than
Trick and pivot in the adjustment of art
is basically the motive - profit
The art market has neglected - to a marshalling yard of pushed works
I go no more to the temples
Instead I prefer to look at oil in the puddle.
Jobless art feeds the genius and as a result it is the biggest honoring an artist can get.
With bread the mind, as everybody knows, does not receive his food.
Nevertheless, trade with the art acts against the art
by pulling them down in the material world and degrading them to consumer goods.
Roland Rafael Repczuk
Art does not exsist to be defined.
It is there to be experienced. The art in the art is not the work, but its interpretation.
The modern art produces some mysteries which to comprehend is true art.
The art in the art is to find somebody who finds again the art in it.
It is no art to generate such pieces of art.
The art consists in declaring these pieces of art as art and in selling it.
The true art of the recollection is the art of attention.
The art of teaching is the art to help to discover.
The art of pleasure is the art of illusion.
Learning a lot and after all a lot of knowledge, is no art;
Living and still dieing, this is the art.
At all times when culture went to ruin it has fallen by artists.
The most precious luxury is the possibility to be allowed to work creatively.
He protects, primarily, his luck of the admission of creative energy experiences itself in deep contentment considering artists
and is released from the compulsion to get a dubious spare satisfaction by acquisition of consumer goods.
Basically it is no decision. He lives a truth.
Between the person and the objective world a very intimate relation exists.
The world is delivered to the viewer ruthlessly.
Innocent you reveal her most tender secrets, does not cve to her innocence will ward off discovered, conquered.
If the unrestrained mechanically working person still tries to snatch her most tender most intimate,
remains to the world only to work so mysteriously as possible, and to punish the person with his own pitiless reality. Art pacifies this war.
