"My paintings are total worlds of their own, nothing more or less and very true in their own universe. In that universe my mental images transforms into graphic form. Creativity is a spiritual, yet not religious experience for me. It´s a little bit like meditation. It is one way to respond to the questions of life."

The intention of the artists as a whole was to create timeless and silent scenes; scenes that contain many moments; scenes of eternity and peace.
