PARADIZES OF PAINT
"I work without a pre-imagined or pre-set idea. In the strokes, the smears and brushing paterns of the paint itself all kind of figures and images reveil themselves. I let them stay or wipe them away. By working this way I experience a close contact between the eye and the paint. The scenes that occur this way, emerge directly from my fantasy and experience".
