I consider myself a conduit for vibrations. In the process of creating imagery and words or movements and sounds I am like a tuner. Using my imagination rather than hard knowledge, I allow myself to gain access to content that I proceed to translate into imagery, forms, colors or whatever seems appropriate for the material I am working with. Ideally, this content is arising spontaneously rather than through effort, trying and searching. To rediscover and allow the natural ability for creation as a way of life is what excites and drives me. Living and working in different countries and environments teaches me about the restrictions of my perception while bringing me tools to expand. My work is knowing the essence of who I am and thereby knowing the world around me.
The function of an artist has always been to live on the leading edge of society. That is why, by definition, from the collective point of view there will always be a misunderstanding about what an artist should do, or what he should be. If there would be no such misunderstanding, then there would be no gap between where we collectively are in this moment, and where we are going or want to be. This gap is exactly where the artist should be at work. Without friction there is no leading edge, but only a stale and lifeless acting out of what art and life in general used to mean in the past, and in effect a stagnation of progress for society as a whole.
