Art Gartner



Traces and Memory : "Gartner’s works appear to be pages torn loose from inventory  of memory. However, this coded language of which we can only try to guess the meaning, strikes us as quite familiar : as if the  artist  first proceeded  to a thorough self-analysis before addressing the spectator. I am particularly touched by the sincerity of his work. Gartner approaches us from the very core of his being and shows us fragments of his life which appeal to our emotions and stimulate our imagination." Pierre Restany

"I would like to retain the time which advances unrelentingly and leave some of my traces in the memory of men..." Gartner
