“Maleri er to-dimensionelt fysisk set. I mit maleriske udtryk er jeg mest forbundet med det poetiske og musik verden. I poesi ligger ordene på forskellige ikke fastsatte meningsniveauer. Musik taler ligeledes til flere områder i følelsernes og tankernes verden og er ikke begrænset af analyserende, logiske sammenhæng. Maleriet er en visuel oplevelse, der som entré kræver en seen, uberørt af etiketter fra den tillærte analyserende logik. I maleprocessen tager det tid for mig at komme ind i ovennævnte verden, og hvert maleri er således en tur på en mølles drejende vinger, hvis resultat (melet), bliver maleriet. Den megen drejen bliver til en indre film, rejse, et besøg i genkende- lige, ukendte universer. På to dimensioner.Pernille de la Porte Ovesen
