The Emotional State of the Image

By Michael Divine

“I painted picture upon picture in keeping with the impression made on my eye in a moment of heightened emotion – painted the lines and colours that remained fastened to my inner eye… By painting the colours and lines and shapes I had seen in an emotional state – I wished to recapture the quivering quality of the emotional atmosphere like a phonograph.”

– Edvard Munch

This. A painting I make is based upon an impression made upon me by the experience of an emotional state. It is to be seen as if listening to a song.
