Question 3: When did you begin to actively create art?

Transcription


I started to actively create art right from the time I left l’UQAM in 1971. I had wanted to teach in schools but it turned out that I found a half-time job, so right from that time I managed to set up a studio where I could work half the time. I had discovered that you can’t lead others to experience artistic creation if you haven’t experienced it yourself, and also I knew that I had not discovered everything about artistic creation after my initial experience. So I myself had to continue experimenting in that field. In addition to that, well it had already become a need for me, to do art for myself.
