In my work I am driven by fixing my life and experiences in ‘MEMORIES ‘ : my inside and outside world like they appeared to me in the 21e century : different worlds, different languages.
My inside world, a world of thinking, creating, universal in feeling, free in form because memories are transformed brain pictures.
My outside world, critical pictures of our society, political and international events, selected from magazines, journals, mostly violent: wars, old worlds without ameliorated human civilization like Goya already painted them, but transmitted in a contemporary form.
