« La perspective me passionne. Pas cette perspective scientifique, mais celle retrouvée, faite de rythme, d'une musique…Parvenir à suggérer un espace immense dans un petit morceau de toile ! »
"Perspective fascinates me. Not perspective in the scientific sense, but this retrieved perspective made up of rhythm, a kind of music… The ability to create a feeling of immense space on just a small piece of canvas!"
