"The question 'what a picture can be' is the engine of my painting. I want to convey this driving force and provide suggestions. I do not produce propaganda, so I do not want the viewer to agree with my thoughts. I want to work, inspire, share my fascination, prompt and capture the viewers’ imagination with what I do. Painting is communication. I communicate with the world. My paintings are manifestations of my reflections and decisions. They document this communication and are supposed to initiate discussion independently of myself."
