‘Spirit is as subtle and intangible as a breath of air. It is an energy circulating between beings and things. It travels with light, winds, clouds or waves, it penetrates in stones, plants and animals. It affects humans, seizing control of their bodies, whose sentiments and sensuality he reveals. It manifests itself at the boundaries of the visible, in a dimension where only imagination can penetrate.’
– Henry Roy, Paris 2009.
