With each painting you renew yourself and begin again. The subject—landscape—has a changing specificity. Dense areas of colors and marks alter what is and could be recognizable. As a painter, your moves, which originate in feeling and intuition, are in sync with your mind’s intention. You work so that all your facilities are active, while still knowing nothing at all. Painting is an emptying of your self to try and feel full again.

“Hiding places there are innumerable, escape is only one, but possibilities of escape, again, are as many as hiding places.”
—Franz Kafka
