    'Painting to me combines expressions of rhythm, poetry, scent, emotion... It offers ways to articulate the spaces between words. Canvas can be attacked, copulated with and played like an instrument. I believe in painting like I believe in music.' (I. Ekblad quoted in Gigiotto Del Vecchio, 'Pure Energy, Deep Poetry', in Mousse Magazine and Publishing, Issue #22, Milan).
