Ida Szigethy, a woman and one of the rare painters
who perform great deeds and make long voyages
in the true direction, the direction which leads
to the origin of things, or in other words,
into the future.
Romantic dreams become reality,
that was how she started to paint
and that was how she painted.
I dreamed along with her.
The she discovered the secret door to a long
and perilous journey into the unknown known,
where - all alone - she fights the demons
or our other world.
And we all stand and watch.
Kaurinui, New Zealand, February 15th, 1983
