"I call this a mystic work because my main motive is the liquidation of adversary, the re-unification of what was torn apart in the beginning of mankind. 2 eyes, 2 ears, 2 halves of the brain, 2 hands, 2 feet. One always needs 2 to experience depth, to enter anything profoundly, including consciousness.

The pain which removes the Self from oneself is called consciousness.

By showing all this together I try to liquidate these divisions which refrain us to exceed certain limits. More specific the limits which refrain us from feeling the unity with all that’s been created.

This is a work in progress, in other words, this work evolves every time it is shown, it is refined, replenished and amplified, it becomes clearer and completer.  I see this work as a melting pot of all elements I’ve been working with in the past 20 years."
