Question 21: What are your thoughts on new technologies that have appeared in the field of visual arts? Do you use any of these in your own creative work?
No not at all. I’m really out of the Middle Ages, it’s oil paint on a canvas treated with gesso. There is no technology. It is there, it is important in terms of communications, but when I’m in my studio, if there wasn’t any electricity I still could paint. A little bit like music, somebody who plays the drums, 5,000 years ago people played the drums. Maybe not the way we do today, or perhaps the same way, but maybe with a different attitude. Anyhow, all the baggage of humanity that develops is added to the content of what you do and our knowledge, and science, what it’s brought us. But when it comes time for me to create, technology isn’t there, not at all.
