Painting is not conceptual art. When someone looks at one of my paintings and asks me What did you want to say I find myself in a difficult position.

Thoughts are absent at the time of a game. We are inside this process, directly touching the essence of what has captured us. The player feels only the manner of play and movement from one moment to another. For me, as an artist, this experience is the main value, at one and the same time journey and destination.
