Personal Statement

“I often ask my paintings whether they dreamed me into existence or if it is the other way around. We live together and yet we are alone, both following our own path and bearing our own destiny. They step into infinity without any reason and do not return. Thinking while they go, listening to their foot steps as they echo in the silence. An immense silence in an endless abyss. Where are they going?

They feel as if they are falling into a trap. At that moment they are like a fish caught in a net, fearful of the stab from a sharp spear. They struggle for life but cannot change their destiny except through the intervention of a miracle. Have they not always been waiting for such a miracle?

They are always faced with hardships and yet are imperturbable. They look straight ahead and stride confidently forward waiting for a promise of happiness to come.”
