Erik Šille

Text

"I’m persuaded that the basic story, which is obviously perceptible in Erik’s paintings, is the story of fascination. Most of all the visual fascination so strong, that it quickly exceeds the limits of politics and ethics. This is the way that Sille’s painting becomes engaged (in a good sense)." (Noro Lacko)
