It is only through an experience of being completely consumed that I can produce the images I seek to produce. In black and white and colour as such is nothing. It is solely in their clashing, merging, opposing, complementing, reassimilating that the image will come into existence. I prefer to give up my imagination in preference to study from nature, but in that studied nature I see only elements of the imagination. Putting art first I wander through and behind the lands of landscape, aware that imagination is manifest at a much greater magnitude in nature than in me.
