My Art Work: Paintings
I paint and sculpt neither to express my feelings nor to share my perceptions of the world with others. Rather, I engage in so-called artistic activities in order to revise my own comprehension of my objects. Thus I paint, not to record what I see but to change it; to understand differently my prior conceptions of the true, the real, and the imaginary. I seek to generate new visions and thoughts by replacing and/or updating my previous ones—whether internal or external (which can be indistinguishable). I work in order to comprehend the life world, not because I already do.
