“HEYDAY” FULL BLOOM. FLUSH OF YOUTH, VIGOUR, PROSPERITY, ETC.
“GOLDEN AGE” BEST AGE OF WORLD WHEN HUMANKIND WAS IDEALLY PROSPEROUS AND
HAPPY…MOST FLOURISHING PERIOD OF CREATIVITY;

Every generation has its “golden age” and if collecting is to reunite  what has been separated, then we as the collectors (with the help of a multitude of people)are bringing together again what has been dispersed, striving to recreate a time of community, creativity and sharing in the world which surrounds us. Perhaps we can add a few visions of the people and creations that are part of the myth and magic of Deia.

“Deia”, Robert Graves would say, “is a truly magical village. There is a great attraction between the sea and the mountains and a lot of iron oxide on the walls of the Teix that surround the village. That means that the village itself is polarized by electromagnetic forces that sharpen peoples sensitivities.“ (Claribel Allegria)

“Contrary to the popular belief that if you remember the 1960s, you weren’t there, I do remember them and I was there. I remember them because those years were my youth and some of the most powerful events, impressions, and relationships come from my time in Deià.





 
There may be no metal in those limestone mountains but there is a form of magnetism that draws me back and holds me close.” (John de St.Jorre)

“Some people say a writer is a person who finds the words and has the courage to write what he thinks. I think a writer is someone who locks himself up with his typewriter, pens and paper and ruins his health because he believes his craft and his ideas are needed. A writer is someone who  hates himself and loves the world. In short a madman of sorts.” (Jakov Lind).

‘The Art of “good painting” embodying that precious, indisputable “something” we call “Fine Art”, is ultimately the best we have to illuminate and sustain our hopes and dreams and simultaneously express our joy and our love for life.’ (George Sheridan).

Marc Heine’s work was said “to convey our society’s automation and excessive consumption and the values of respect for nature and ethics; it conveys the contemplation of beautiful as an escape and as a reflection on existential problems.” (Busquets)

All of the artists included here questioned their worlds, their futures, and their pasts with  curious and critical minds.
