Nowadays, it is hard to find people out there who understands why should anybody need to paint apples or flowers again and again. Indeed, for some, the trivial nature of these topics hides the fact that there might exist any pictorial thinking underneath. However, I do believe that this pictorial thinking might be as important as the most daring avant-garde.

I do believe that Painting has to give leads again in order that nobody should feel excluded.
