Expect the unexpected — in my paintings I navigate both the expected and the unexpected. I often have no idea what the next gesture will bring, and somehow I have to clear my mind before I begin to paint. Water, oil, colour, sand, pigment... sometimes I try to control how they move, like dancing with a familiar partner, but I’m not always able to do so and must allow them go the way they want to — even when it’s not the way I expected! It is a principle of nature. The image is a result of the feelings that arise in me and in the viewer. Many times I’ve been asked to explain the meaning of my paintings, and each time my reply has been evident at the bottom of the work: “Untitled”.
