About

"""Because I truly do not know what I am getting into most of the time. I get an idea, want to talk about it, but how? My “products” have little to do with each other. I do not have a “style” that offers Step One. Other people’s work intimidates and never gives me a pattern. I am basically always scared I cannot sufficiently bring you the idea correctly, and, besides all that, do not understand where ideas come from in the first place. They certainly don’t come from each other! Sooo I can’t be helpful at an exhibition. When someone wants to buy something, I can’t be their advisor. One needs to relate to an idea, be affected by it, or not, in order to take serious ownership of a work of “art.” So I sit outside. Set up my easel. Way back in Spain, at my first European exhibition, I decided to pick ac plant to paint so as not to waste my time. Seagrape is perfect: sculptural, outrageously flaunting her dinner-plate leaves in unexpected directions.By now, I have done many and have never been bored by her. A painting, dancing with these leaves, lets my color urges play with themselves at random, totally instinctual, unchosen on purpose."
