I have always had two fundamental interests in life: art and meditation, both of them intimately related. The interior spaces that I experience in meditation are converted into the landscapes of my paintings; the restlessness of my mind transformed into landfills. When I paint, I experience meditative states; through meditation I achieve a union with nature, and nature, in turn, leads me to meditation. Interior experience is the unity of all that exists; external experience is unity in diversity. This sensitizes me to my surroundings. I respect diversity and free expression, in life as in art.
