style has been expressionist from the very start. It suits to my
nature. I often get ideas for my paintings from other people's
memories which have impressed me somehow, historical events have also
made their way into my work. The result has almost always been
completely and utterly abstract. Sometimes people's faces appear on
my paintings as if they were forced to - and I can't say what is the
purpose of that."
