“A picture should not just be a picture but always express more. Art should emerge from itself, instead of being a forced construct. It is about the interplay of ideas, creativity, execution (technique) and the urge to want to create something, to see, recognise, understand, and explain. But a picture should also be allowed to be a picture”
