STATEMENT

What interests me is reality, and for me, reality is an enigma.
My painting, is not a representation of reality.
It is enigmatic figuration.
I like to make paintings that are silent because I think
silence actually carries enigma and gives them power.
The power of images comes from their silence.
Silence says what it has to say about itself.
Then it resonates in one’s own dream, one’s own interiority.
Resonance leads to intimate projections that question us
and may model our reality.
