Paintings

The painting modes I use change over the years. Some things stay: specific symbols and geometries, forms, choices of color and general attitudes.

My paintings usually don’t portray people, but show what happens inside: thoughts, fears, projections, memories. These paintings could be interpreted to trace the subconscious.

It was the astrologer’s remarks about cruelty that had reminded me of that incident, which at the time had seemed to prove that whatever we might wish to believe about ourselves, we are only the result of how others have treated us.

I was too buzzy to read, thinking of teacher, of her manner of saying there were sunsets every day, that we weren’t meant to be coffined and buried whilst all the time still living, that nothing of the dark was so enormous that never could we surmount it, that always there were new chapters, that we must let go the old, open ourselves to symbolism, to the most unexpected of interpretations, that we must too, uncover what we’ve kept hidden, what we think we might have lost. ‘Implement a choice, dear class,’ she said. ‘Come out from those places. You never know,’ she concluded, ‘the moment of the fulcrum, the pivot, the turnaround, the instant when the meaning of it all will appear.’
