“Curt Asker has in unconventional ways reached a painting technique where the light, liberating simplicity arising is anything but easy: The unification of fine discernment and power is difficult to achieve.”

Ulf Linde´s commentary on Läkerol´s price in culture 1988:

Spinoza´s apprehension of time, as a fixed image in the unchangeable eternity, is to me a good starting-point for trying to seize the opportunity.”

Curt Asker
