“Close your eyes. Watch me. Watch my voice. I am a bird. A white bird. Burning. Right in front of you. See my eyes?”
Rick Pryll, WALLOW: stories, rumors and other theatrics

“Such a beautiful place at night. This is Prague.”
Rick Pryll, WALLOW: stories, rumors and other theatrics

“I don't need a crystal ball to see into the future, although they are quite beautiful.”
Rick Pryll, The Chimera of Prague

“It’s romantic: two expats in a car full of paintings making their way across an ancient city. One heartbroken, strike that, both in varying states of brokenheartedness. Aren’t we all?”
Rick Pryll, La Chimère of Prague: Part II

“[Neruda’s] work captures the everyday life of regular people in the Little Quarter. Completely changed but unchanged, its cobble and brick outlines, the colorful contents whirling in a time-lapse blur.”
Rick Pryll, La Chimère of Prague

“A house, however humble, is a habitat. It has a direct impact on its occupants. [...] It soaks up the light as the sun passes over it; it absorbs the night, with or without the moon.”
Rick Pryll

“In creating a database, I structure information to be stored. I create order in the universe. I reduce entropy. I keep chaos at bay.”
Rick Pryll, La Chimère of Prague: Part II

“Let's not fall in love. Let's follow the delicate threads in ourselves to find out where they lead.”
Rick Pryll, The Chimera of Prague
