Artist Statement

It is almost impossible to write about art. A few writers have been successful; one of those is Octavio Paz… Painting is about painting , not writing ,or talking. THE PROCESS OF MAKING ART REMAINS HIDDEN. The best an artist can hope for is to see his work years after he made it and ask: how was this made? The most interesting territory is the border zone, the space between things and extremes; for example: BLACK is the ultimate color. Painting landscapes is about painting.
