What about painting?
It came to me as a mean to say these “important things” you don’t speak about. These things can’t be said clearly. They are literally unspeakable. They become blurry and they eventually vanish when analysed.
They can be expressed only by allusion.
(Blood on the Road)
A tragic event will will affect the artist deeply and for a long time. In August 1966, Montlaur was on vacation in Brittany. The car in which he was a passenger collided with a young boy on a moped. He helped him and stayed with him for a long time, speaking to him, trying to reassure him while the child was dying.
The horror of the painting does not need to be described.
