I come to terms with my body, part with it; then persuade my soul and take my place in front of the canvas. I set free all the spirits and ghosts captured within. This is a place where there is improvisation instead of composition, chaos instead of order; meaninglessness  prevails against meanings. I find myself in a virtual heaven when painting and as the smell of paint applied so delightfully returns to me as a delicious poison, I come to think that my body is struck with it but my soul is nourished with art. And when my soul and body finally unite again, I wake up from this colorful dream.
