Why do artists create
If you could say it in words, there'd be no reason to paint.
People simply fail to understand that we paint in order to experiment and to develop ourselves as we strive for greater heights.
I don't paint to live, I live to paint.
Willem de Kooning
If I didn't think what I was doing had something to do with enlarging the boundaries of art, I wouldn't go on doing it.
Art to me is a humanitarian act and I believe that there is a responsibility that art should somehow be able to have an effect on mankind and make the world a better place.
I want to touch people with my art. I want them to say 'he feels deeply, he feels tenderly.'
Vincent Van Gogh
The primary purpose of life is to achieve a growth of consciousness.
Learning to trust my own creative process has been key to my artistic development, and I continue to learn with each new piece.
Getting into alignment with our truth is like opening the door to destiny.
All art deals with the absurd and aims at the simple. Good art speaks truth, indeed is truth, perhaps the only truth.
I seek for neither the real or the unreal, but for the subconscious, the instinctive mystery of the human race.
I am for an art that is political-erotical-mystical, that does something other than sit on its ass in a museum.
Every man who steeps himself in the spiritual possibilities of his heart is a valuable helper in the building of the spiritual pyramid which will someday reach to heaven.
My art is destined for the XXI century.
To send light into the darkness of men's hearts, such is the duty of the artist.
As artists, we are educators and communicators. We need to keep our finger on the pulse of society.
In some ways I am a treasure hunter, searching for that perfect moment of order that sometimes occurs in the midst of chaos.
We just have to look and listen within, and be curious about our own experience.
My art is destined for the twenty-first century.
