Life itself is my major source of inspiration. Spontaneously
I want to represent my feelings.
I am not an aesthetic. Beauty in its essentials does not interest
me. I am searching for an answer for the antipodes of that experience.
Colour makes one really observant, not like the lens of the camera,
but with your feelings, your psyche.
I never use a model. That would limit me too much. I work out
of my head, using the memories of everything I have seen and experienced.
If I start with a piece I never know what it will be. I touch
the paper and everything comes.
The fight and the faces are in me. If they come out of my mind
and the painting is finished I feel stronger.
I think more than I act, but I am not a philosopher. I consider
the question itself being the thing that it is all about.
