I think in terms of the construction of a dream, or of worshipping paper. A painter’s thinking needs to be cosmic. Because of the intense inwardness of my vision, and the purity and power of my reactions to the world around me, I aspire to break through in the way that Dali, Kandinsky and Klee managed to break through in the twentieth Century. I think my works of art combine, in an organic whole, two lines of development: Surrealism and Abstraction. Perhaps there are too many symbols in my works – crosses, spirals, springs, spheres or quite real snails or flies, human bodies and severed limbs are all part of a medieval mysticism worshipped by me. But this expresses the force of my imagination and the concentration of my dreams.
