1This is my dream. To get better, buy an old cottage or something... somewhere, have some dogs, paint and live out the rest of my days happy...
2I love color. I also love the rapidograph. I found that pen and really fell in love with it. It creates those lines that I want that segments the body... to treat the body not as an inhuman thing, but see if I could make something human out of something that was sort of angular. But mostly, I'm interested in a lot of color, a lot of vibrancy: nature! And, I'm not very interested in painting reality, per se. I'm representing reality, in color, in form, in line: in black and white and in color...
3I will like you to perceive my art as something of nature that can heal with its color, its movement and its simplicity.
4The Caribs had immense influence in my life, even before I saw Picasso's work, I was influenced by their art.
