“I drew one line after another or I should rather say wrote the figures, without making any preliminary sketch, directly on the canvas with black oil paint. I wanted to put all the discoveries made in my mind without (or as less as possible) interfering in the process. What came up in my mind then, is what you see on the canvas. I think colors distract. Just black and white is direct, honest and the figures were put as and how they came - straight from the mind. By coloring or even shadowing, the link would have been broken”.
"Black and white is the most simple, most pure, most clear and holds mysticism in it. When the black paint or ink touched the surface of the canvas, it could not be removed. Even mistakes could not be repaired. All what the hand drew, came straightaway out of the subconscious and I think direct line and a minimum of basic colors are the best ways to approach the subconscious with. All that I could do afterwards such as repairing or coloring is too much thought about and that is just what I wanted to avoid. I wanted to stay true to the original source and there I left it”.
