The memory of the smell of oil paints in a paint-by-numbers kit given to me when I was 7 years old, the infinite malleability and primal feel of clay in my hands, the breathtaking sight of colours when they meet, the infinite beauty I see everywhere I look; all these and many other sensual experiences have shaped my way of looking at and experiencing life ever since I can remember.
The creating of art has always been the simplest and most direct way for me to respond to what I find around me, a way for me to take it all into my hands. I literally aspire to live my life as a form of art.
“Faire de soi meme une oevre d’art” “To make of yourself an art work”. Maurice Bejart, choreographer
