나의 작품은 기억과 잃어버린 꿈에 관한 것이다. 나는 나의 삶의 흔적들을 포착한 후 이 흔적들을 전체적인 틀 안에서 조망한다. 이 흔적들은 내가 누구인지를 말해준다. 나의 삶을 형태화한 이 작품은 자서전은 아니고 내가 관람객들에게 남기는 패턴 조각들일 뿐이다.

My work is about memories and lost dreams. I capture impressions from my life, transmit them and place them in perspective. They leave traces of whom I am. It is not a biography, but merely pieces of the pattern that shapes my life and that I leave to the passer-by.
