The Pursuit of an Idea

'Seeing an image being born is a privilege.

Witnessing the process of the creation
of a painting is the closest way to intimacy.

Being part of it and surrounded by the atmosphere,
is the kind of lust that makes me want to be an artist.

To feel an idea forming inside is the most exciting thing
I can think of.
To paint is a way of portraying an
inner truth. It is the kind of intimacy that stays,
the kind that will not go away.


Creating an image is all about seizing the moment and
seeing it through. I love the way that it feels to surrender
and just give in to it. It is wonderful when the outer
results correspond to what I had in mind."
