“Antinomy is a constant companion with me in life. Had I tried to say that because it seems impossible to understand beauty, especially in our current cultural environment, I can’t be an artist, it seemed to me entirely possible to also say, don’t be an artist then, just see if you can fall into beauty without realising it, and see if there are others who would like to fall into this with you. I don’t know if a portrait of my work-to-date would be possible if it weren’t for these thoughts, and without the confession that I fell into being an artist, the same way we say we fall in love. Do we judge in that moment we fall in love, or do we just try to be with the blissful naiveté as long as it would let us?”
