“My working method for ink drawings originates from the impulse to render the narrative by word, to write the image, to scribe the story in firm, precise language. The choice of line extends as well to etching, engraving and lithography.
My drawings, in recent years, from 1998 onwards, have been exploring my deep rooted sese of myth, the mythology of land, sea and all the elements entering into the human and emerging as personal story. Sometimes those stories are then filtered though long-made models, the Holy Books for instance. But all stories told and rendered by image become, always, personal.
Working methods of the artist, all methods of communication become as a result, a private alphabet. The nib-and-ink creates my alphabet.”
