"A change of vision" (100 x 80 cm) , by Erik Pevernagie, oil on canvas,

By recurrently changing the horizon, things can be perceived from another angle and the perspective of our life can be reoriented. If we can’t recast our life, our vision of the world gets rusted and the squeaking wheel of our mind will suffer from lack of oil.

Andre Gide tells us to have the audacity to abandon our habitual way of behaving: “Man cannot discover new oceans unless he has the courage to lose sight of the shore" and for Albert Einstein we can't change things without changing our thinking : “The world as we have created it is a process of our thinking. It cannot be changed without changing our thinking.”

Also Friedrich Nietzsche claims that without changing one's mind one becomes mentally deficient: “The snake which cannot cast its skin has to die. As well the minds which are prevented from changing their opinions; they cease to be mind.”

Andy Warhol makes a distinction between a passive or an active approach of time: “They always say time changes things, but you actually have to change them yourself.”
