Very much alone in my work, I am almost jealous of it.
The painting develops before my eyes, unfolding its surprises as it progresses. It is this which gives me the sense of complete liberty, and for this reason I am incapable of forming a plan or making a sketch beforehand.
I believe there is little to gain by exchanging opinions with other artists concerning either the ideology of art or technical methods.
Geography has no bearing on it, nor have the interests of the community in which I work.
