“When creating I enjoy solitude, which allows me to be with my things at my studio, review them, read a good book, reread another. A good comparison is the tranquility that gives you to stand on the road and watch the cars go by. Isolation is necessary to order and express my thoughts on the canvas where I transport myself to a world completely controlled by me. A world where gravity is manipulated in a utopian landscape.” KS.
