“I dig on paper some of my encounters, a paper that I insole myself as to give a bed, a field, a site to my impressions, to my own presence in the world. I invite the light of day to come and fertilize this paper to reveal the image that is imbued with it. It is an old kitchen, a kind of magic pot in which I dip my imagination as we dip his pen in an ink carefully refined by time.”
