As all things provoke my senses, I want to provoke your senses, your perceptions, and your feelings. I want everybody to hear the rain. I want you to feel the pain. If you cannot see the wound, does that mean the wound is not really there?
Why is it that our inner world is so removed from this outer world? I want to feel and to connect these two worlds. I want to portray this invisible world beautifully and painfully as I see it.
I wanted to do paintings using signs and symbols to translate into my language (the language of art). I selected certain signs and symbols to describe what interests me and what I want to say to people. It could be a warning, a statement or just simply a means of control. This is for the viewer to question and answer and it is his or her freedom to choose to ignore them or to look at them with profound interest.
