"Sometimes, after I finish a group of paintings, I’m not sure what to do next. I have to wait, and then- slowly- things fall into place. I try a few things and then I realize what could be done and what interests me at the moment. I don’t know where these thoughts come from exactly. There are all kinds of influences- not really art influences, either- just daily experiences, life experiences. But always, in the back of my mind, is the structure that I approach and work from."
