There is something dramatically symphonic about these paintings. They seem to belong to another unreal world and yet, they are imbued with the original motifs of banal village life. Indeed one of the great surprises of this art is that such grand opera emerges out of such modesty. An explosive mixture of romance and the unfathomable, of bright scurrility and religious fervor, streams out of this pictures, calling forth an unreal, dreamlike occurrence like some ethereal balloon, rising up into a time that flickers nervously and is measured in global beats.
