Portraits of Artists 22

I try to let the picture develop by itself, not to aim at a direct goal, but to work constantly in detachment of gravity. It is not a matter of walking a path to the goal, but of constantly hovering –  hovering until something is there. And then at some point you decide: now you go down to the ground and leave the picture. (Hubert Schmalix)

The conversation between Hubert Schmalix and Georg Schöllhammer was held in May 1993.
