Basically, I no longer work for anything but the sensation I have while working.

“The object of art is not to reproduce reality, but to create a reality of the same intensity.”

My colleagues admonish me, ‘paint with colors!’ Isn’t gray a color, too? If I see everything in gray, if within that gray I see all the colors that impress me and that I would like to convey, why should I use another color?

Artistically I am still a child with a whole life ahead of me to discover and create. I want something, but I won’t know what it is until I succeed in doing it.
