"It is very difficult for an artist in our time to find his way because there are so many strange ways to distract him from his own way. And if an artist gives up his own way - what is left to him ? - just to follow the fashion of the time which means the destruction of art and the artist.
All phenomena of life are subject to expression in art and I have allowed myself to follow this belief. Thus the themes and motifs of my creations are diverse - giving free rein to my feelings and impressions. Nature graciously gave me many motifs which I followed and worked on."
