The search for the unseen reality has always been my concern, to let my time in contemplation be a source for the expression of the spiritual which I experience there, to bring back what I find, allowing the image to speak of this. The contemplation is not sought for the purpose of the work, but simply informs it intuitively. I cannot force the idea or meaning into the work. This allows myself and the work to both be free to bridge the gap between art and life.
