“I draw with pencils, India ink, pigments, textile fibres, on or in paper or soap; sometimes I take photographs of states, relationships, the almost-invisible or the energy, the wake of actions. I am a character and a creator – it is a concentrated expression of how I find myself in art, shamanism, the new unifying theories of physics, transpersonal psychology and mysticism. I practice art as daily alchemy similar to the anonymous creations by children and women. When I believe in the sacred nature of matter, it can undergo transformations. It is free to change its structure and form. It can become art.”
