“Let me introduce you to my “internal puppets”.
They have been with me since my earliest dreams, and began to take shape on paper more than half a century ago. They have shared the different moods of my mind and like my music, they represent my deepest and nameless feelings, beyond the language of words.
The endless work of learning through one's own practice and the illiterate knowledge obtained by gazing, continues to fill the hours of my daily life in a volitional practice, almost unconscious.
As you will notice, my intention is not to replicate the physical realm, but rather to communicate the feeling or sense that there is something beyond.
Like my music, I believe that my artwork is emotional, intuitive, visceral, energetic and exciting to the eye of the beholder.”
