“For me, it’s not about the subject matter at all – subject matter is just a pretext for my execution and sensitivity to technical issues. I’m getting closer to the divine harmony, closer to divinity, but not quite yet. That is what is great about painting – just when you think you are getting there, the point of achievement moves away. But, I want to catch that moment of solitude, that quiet harmony that people can relate to. That’s what I’m after.”
