“In painting I rely on direct, sensuous perception and intuition,” say Chapuis. “I paint to draw on the compelling interplay between matter and spirit. I let the painting exist as such, let it have its own inner life, its own pulsation and vibration. In this way, the painting becomes a luminous veil – empty and abundant at the same time.” -Katharina Chapuis
