#VivianGreven Quotes

›All my paintings deal with proximity. They are about touching, reaching out. I believe that this is a fundamental human need. It is about seeking contact. In the process, I try to get close to the human being. I have the feeling we are becoming more and more out of touch. Hence, painting is the ideal medium for me. Because painting has a lot to do with touch; it is a tender medium.‹ (translated) Vivian Greven for ›A Painter’s Doubt‹, Salzburger Kunstverein, 2017
