In a picture TIME "t" appears to be frozen: t= constant. Yet appearances deceive: as the picture on file b)("Clearingin a forest of coffee")shrubs in Angola, 1968) shows, you watch as if sitting in a train with the outside scenery passing by. "JOSY'sDancers"also give an illusion of motion and thus TIME. When a young woman appears in four different positions in the photo collage (below) –MARSALFORM,Gozo/Malta, 1988 –this suggests the passage of TIME. A classic example of capturedTIME is given by images that split a process into individual PHASES(file c). It took 24 phases per minute to make a movie when the pictures finally learned to move. The collageThe Grand Harbourin Valetta /Malta, 1988 –uses a reverse perspective and the dockyards and quarters projecting on the left and right to create three-dimensional depth, as if we were sailing into this wonderful natural harbour. There is no doubt about it: TIME is part and parcel of the image and thus of painting, even though it appears to stand still in a picture –an erroneous perception because our INNER images are always joined to a TIME factor!
