- Why did you decide to go back to painting? What was the reason and motivation for going back?
- Your sculptures are very representative. However, the new set of painting that you have shown at Christine Park Gallery aren’t of the same make. I would like to understand what informed your decision. What is the philosophical meaning to it? As you may know, Chinese calligraphers changed their names in the middle of their career. They do this with the intention of starting afresh, an attempt at being unrecognized. Does your art represent the same type of mind and concept shift?
- Are you trying to bring textures from sculpture to painting?
- How do you want to be remembered?
- “The colors are now the gateway through which he passes to reach the truth of his feelings.” Would you, please, explain this statement to us?
- What does it take to make a great piece of art?
- Rembrandt took a picture of himself in the studio against a blank canvas, expressing the anxiety and wonder about the beauty of a blank canvas. How do you confront blank canvas? How different is it from sculpture?
- How often do you paint?
- Is sculpture “dead?”
