My son once asked me to tell a person who was interested to know what materials I used and how I worked. I replied that my materials were so many and so varied it would be difficult to list them all. They ranged from water-based acrylics to oils, varnishes and other heavier lacquers. For the texture of women’s skin (always women), I lay down colour in a kind of vaporous mist, almost in the way the dew wets a flower.  


Magic bores me. I never use it.  It can be done with a very fine airbrush of the same calibre as a hair. Leonardo might have used it for his sfumatos. I achieve shine and transparency by applying varnishes and lacquers to fragments where the female anatomy requires it. As an aside I may say that the feminine never makes demands on me, but provides me only pleasure. 


I petrify plaster and pine resins in landscapes and sketches. I place highly worked slivers of wood side by side with the excrescencies of turpentine and oil paints. I adapt corals and amber, and if I cannot find a jewel, I make one. 

 

I believe what I do in some way echoes the spell that nature casts on us. I flee from the spontaneous and random. Everything is directed under the bright light of reason.  Let us say I am like a conductor, who directs the different instruments and musicians of the orchestra with his baton.  I do not believe in improvisation or in the effects of alcohol or drugs. Serenity and reason are my watchwords. In art and in everything else. I believe the human body itself contains the perfect laboratory to generate the ultimate components of creativity per se. Including hallucinogens. 

This argument is summed up by John Ruskin, “Art is Man added to Nature.”
