ABOUT MY WORKI have been applying the principles of Zen in the actual act of painting but I don't consider myself to be a Zen painter. The first principle I apply is trust. I that come through my hand. My need to apply a particular colour comes from the immediate moment. I do not follow any aesthetic rules. I don't discriminate according to the concepts of beauty or ugliness. I trust and accept the result I get. It's the immediate moment, the here and now, that makes my work what it is. Through this process my paintings - as all my work - becomes an instrument of amelioration of myself as a human being. All the shapes are made by hand. By focusing totally in the moment I can apply precision without any effort. This precision somehow becomes a form of meditation.
