Brian Calvin
by Phillip Van den Bossche

“The vice called surrealism is the immoderate and passionate use of the drug which is the image.” (Louis Aragon)

Imagine an exhibition with paintings of Brian Calvin in Paris and during the opening one would follow bits of conversations between guests coming from different worlds. Philip Guston for instance, would explain to Louis Aragon how we inherited ‘back in the future’ the myth of abstract art: “There is something ridiculous and miserly in the fact that painting is autonomous, pure and for itself.
