“My paintings are formed out of my impressions, observations and my emotional experiences I see reality as an endless process of conflicts and decisions, therefore the tonality of experience can never be resolved in a definite way. The texture of life is like the surface of a block of clay; it is shaped and molded by the circumstances of daily conflicts, personal and collective catastrophes and individual questioning. My work lives on this quest until it becomes a rite of realizations, a struggle for the possibility to order the sensation of consciousness.
I don’t use a paint brush. I use Palm of my hand to paint the canvas. My fingertips trump and knife to sharpen the edge. I feel that each letter has a character of its own, which the artist must portray with beauty. The letter must speak through the medium to present its meaning"
