Question 18: What is your purpose in art-making?

Transcription


What I try to do with my art concerns knowledge, to give attention to something unique so that I’ll know myself better, and better understand what I’m doing and my position as an individual in the universe. This issue has bothered me since I was very young and it is only through my artistic practice that I have reached the answers, at least those I can give out today. Because I’ve discovered through paying specific attention to one thing in my life, making all the sacrifices necessary to keep on giving this attention and this time, well it ends up addressing most of my quests for knowledge. I feel that my relationship with painting gives me knowledge about the reasons I’m here, that I’ve been put on Earth.
