From an interview by Helen Gathe:
How would you describe the contents of your own art?
The main ideas are the meaninglessness of war, the many ruined lives and faces, the time that has been lost and the great challenges of the poor parts of the world.
The underlying ideas can be
complex. There is a lot of trial and error in the process. In my art, it is essential for me to create an ongoing dialogue.
Art should play a far greater role in society than what is the case today.
What causes the expression in your paintings to change so markedly with time?
I live in exile, far away from my own culture. The expression in my paintings
changes with my environments. I am also influenced by what is happening in other parts of the world, and with broader philosophical questions like the meaning of live. It is in a constant state of flux. We develop and we change.
