I always hope to compose art that one could live with. Art that is suggestive, subtle, sometimes simple or minimalistic (rarely), but which I hope is never primarily decorative or Kitsch.
This dictum is wonderful:
"My painting is visible images which conceal nothing; they evoke mystery and, indeed, when one sees one of my pictures, one asks oneself this simple question 'What does that mean'? It does not mean anything, because mystery means nothing"
