...From the almost critical observation
of this wall, Albert Yohai drew the idea, the project for
most of the pictures you can decode in the exhibition. For
him it was not the wailing wall, but the wall of Inspiration
... For Albert Yohai every picture
is therefore an adventure, a sort of trip into himself from
nature as a starting point... a real cruise with stopovers
which can change the project of a voyage and it's itinerary.
Painting is not agitation but meditation. It is an outlook'
a power of transforming through memory. I'll dare to conclude
"Albert Yohai, meditating on
nature and on himself, is anguished self portrait painter,
who never painted a self portrait."
