“As I allow myself all freedom in creating …”
As I allow myself all freedom in creating, never restricting myself with either the theme or the technique or painting surface, collage is merely one of the modes through which I express myself. Also frequently, this is just one of the techniques of a certain artwork, as with the use of collage my creative freedom and width are enhanced.
The material pasted may be anything that allows itself to be adhered, while the surface may be anything on which we can paint and paste. Texts that appear in my paintings are not of the nature of message but rather I use them as artistic elements replacing colour – while that what they convey is of a much covered deeper nature, conveying everything else than any word read might … But if I explicitly desire to tell something through words, the reader of the painting will notice this, and will build what words say into the story itself … Rarely, but it happens.
