My work is a struggle against the essential futility of life. It is an attempt to exteriorise my lifelong suspicion of the notions of ambition, career and hierarchy. Even making this statement is anathema to me. I work from the principle that life has no purpose and that art, whatever that is, can be anything and nothing.
To avoid aspirations.
