"Whatever it is that I'm painting, changes its shape and it expresses itself in different things and different people. At times, it is lucidly manifest in a painting.
The images of my works live their own internal life, which carries the process forward. The clue is found in imagery of my paintings, not ideas. The most important is the state of mind where the work is done."
