Art has to do with whatís happening around us in our time.
That is true, but itís also true that there are realities that transcend fashion and the time that we live in. Those realities donít depend on the technology that we use to express ourselves.
The subject matter that Iím interested in has to do with energy, spontaneity, courage and fearlessness in the execution. Iíve chosen oil painting as my medium because I feel that itís the best technology at hand in order to express the values stated above. My expression is abstract in order that the viewer not be distracted with representation. The painting is what it is.
One day a lady criticized Matisse because she claimed that his painting didnít look like her. He answered saying that he had not painted a lady, he had painted a painting.
la petit difference.
