Caziel: Paintings from 1935-1949

"Every painting must have it germ of mystery" - Caziel 1966

In the Catalogue of his exhibition at the Grabowski Gallery in 1965 Caziel wrote about himself:
"You will find in my canvases a texture which should catch the rays of light strikes it and makes the painting come to life. My paintings do not reveal themselves at the first glance. One needs patience and opportunity. I construct my space by geometric lines between which I integrate forms which have life of germinating substance."


This comment puts a valuable insight on both, Caziel's early paintings and his more mature works of the 1960s.
