The idea for a painting invariably marks the beginning of my work. It dictates the form of expression I use. It does not matter whether the result is abstract, representational, photorealistic or surrealistic, whether the motif is originary, cited, collaged or composed. Regardless of the subject I choose one of the many possibilities of different forms of expression – in the end the score is a minor matter, what I care about is the performance that is to say the execution of the work and ultimately its energetic impact. The impact always has to live up to the subject.
