(21.04.1964 – 21.10.2014)

“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. That is, I’ve already said what I wanted to say through the medium of painting. With the help of color, rhythm and so on…and to demand that I translate the language of art into the language of words is impossible, to say the least. I am an artist, not a writer, my materials are oil-paints, ink, pencils and so on, and not words.”
