BLURB

When we look at Edward Hopper’s paintings, what we can see is not just scenes that express the American character, but the abstraction of an immense longing. In his pure compositions of cityscapes the viewer is merely a voyeur who comes right before something would be about to happen or after the climax. Yet, there is drama in the calmest scenes as his characters’ eyes always gaze into the unknowable infinity of the future. But does everybody not feel the same way? For instance, a girl is standing beside the highway in the darkness well after midnight. She is lost somewhere along the road as there are no reference points, no trees or visitors, just her hope, not even to get somewhere, but only to start out. The question regarding what happens before or after a story is about creating a context, which sometimes seems unimaginably more difficult than to simply exist. When you are thrown into the world with nothing to hold on to, the only things you have are your inner thoughts that you need to build a world out of. And this is just the beginning. [Andras Gal]
