I do not like to confuse anyone or to simply entertain. The concept of "smart art" does not exist in my realm- I leave that to the ad-agencies who bamboozle the masses in order to maintain the "Status quo" which, as you know did the human race very little good.
This is how my mind works when I 'do' what I 'do':
My work originates in the subconscious; an idea for a piece comes to me in a fraction of a second,from the stomach. I then browse through my studio looking for a way to express this idea with all the possible means (materials) I have at hand at that moment.
Then I distill the possibilities, calculating what is possible and what is not. If nothing appears to be ‘possible’ I begin to experiment anyway with the first probable option that first came to my mind when the ‘idea’ appeared. I try out various ways to physically ‘bring to life’ this idea. “Just Doing” is part of my process and by “Doing” the idea turns into something much bigger and something much more interesting then I ever could have imagined in the beginning.
Unlike many artists I do not rely on previous "success patterns" and 'pump out the work' accordingly in order to sell or to please my clients and/or audience. I test myself all the time, never quite sure of what I'm doing. I accept my (through time) acquired 'bag of information' but mostly I trust my basic instincts. If I'm not surprised myself with a result, how can anyone else be?
Art is not a 'business' and 'Time' is irrelevant. It is the love and dedication to reach a state of clarity and union with what it means to be a human being on this planet, to achieve a greater sense of awareness. This is difficult and a great personal sacrifice many times, so I'm very happy when someone likes what I present to them. That's my reward.
