"Painting is always a form of communication. We´re not painting in a vacuum. We´re painting because we´re a menber of the human race and this is our deepest way of communication and of receiving response. It´s deeper than any other; it´s deeper than sex; it´s deeper than speking; it´s deeper than thought, because it is beyond thought. It is actually physical, and it´s the physicality of the painting which connects me to other people, not just the painting, but its being. It´s a mutual acknowledgement of our common physicality and fate. But the viewer is a kind of limited word in painting, because a painting views the viewer as much as the viewer views the painting."
