"You don't have to invent painting, life itself paints, you just have to live. It's as natural as walking, feeling, you just have to find a reason to do it. The limits are determined by our biographies and they can't be deceived." Leon Tarasewicz, quote from: Joanna Mytkowska, Leon Tarasewicz. Man muss bloß leben, in: Verteidigung der Moderne. Positionen der polnischen Kunst nach 1945, Museum Würth, Bonn October 5, 2000 - January 24, 2001, pp. 271f.
