Quotations by and for an artist who reportedly died
on Sunday, January 15, 2017 —

"What drives my vision is a need to locate
a 'genetically felt' devotional space
in which a simultaneous multiplicity
of disparate realities coexists."

— The late Ciel Bergman, in her webpage
     "Artist's Statement"

"Once a registered nurse who worked in a hospital
psychiatric ward, Ms. Bergman was a struggling
single mom of two when she couldn’t resist the pull
of her art. In 1969, she entered a painting in the
Jack London Invitational, an art contest in Oakland,
and won first prize. This compelled her to enroll at
the San Francisco Art Institute, where she earned
her master of fine arts with honors in painting."

Sam Whiting in the San Francisco Chronicle

See also Oakland in this journal and
"Only a peculiar can enter a time loop."

"The peculiar kind of 'identity' that is attributed to
apparently altogether heterogeneous figures
in virtue of their being transformable into one another
by means of certain operations defining a group,
is thus seen to exist also in the domain of perception."

— Ernst Cassirer, quoted here on
     Midsummer Eve (St. John's Eve), 2010
