I enjoy the juxtaposition of things Ė whether the things depicted are colorful or not Ė whether they are depicted in chiaroscuro or not. And while some pieces of art are as comfortable for me as lifelong friends, others are difficult for me to endure even for a span of seconds. The criterion: the virtue of art can be measured by the length of time it takes to weary of it.
Also, artists are necessary, but not sufficient, for the creation of a work of art. At the inception and throughout the materialization of any given piece, itís as if something or someone is helping me, and any art work I create is the consequence of receiving intuitions and emotions from elsewhere. Art involves a partnership with an entity outside oneself.
