Statement: Only what is brave and daring can have real value for me. All importants things in art issue from the unconsciuous, but without observation of the outside world nothing can be done. Some artists say that they can create solely from their own "interior", but I can not believe this. An artist finds inspiration in the surrounding natural world amongst human desires.
