  • “I only see beauty. And the beauty is only beauty and nothing else, whether it be a beautiful bag, or a beautiful piece of wood, iron or something else… Every painting I do, with whatever material, you can be sure it’s perfect for me. Perfect in form and in space. Form and space are the essential qualities that really count” Alberto Burri
