1950-1959

«The painter does not copy nature, he uses the laws of nature in his art. The subject matter of the picture can be real or dreamed, because what man can invent, he can realize. The only limit for his visions is the dialectic of nature, where the real and the dream coexist.»

Quote from Hans Erni in the book “Zeitzeuge Hans Erni” by Karl Bühlmann, Verlag Neue Zürcher Zeitung, 2009.
