I have a new video interview here conducted by the wonderful gentleman Chris Bentzen of Hot Art Wet City

In the video I talk about the turning point that I find while creating a painting and I talk alot about creativity in general. I compare deep creativity to going into a well - me and my metaphors! Sheesh!


I think that I am inspired by Haruki Murakami's Wind Up Bird where the main character goes down into a well on a regular basis. It's a very surreal story!


“Have you ever had that feeling—that you’d like to go to a whole different place and become a whole different self?” 
― Haruki MurakamiThe Wind-Up Bird Chronicle

“The point is, not to resist the flow. You go up when you're supposed to go up and down when you're supposed to go down. When you're supposed to go up, find the highest tower and climb to the top. When you're supposed to go down, find the deepest well and go down to the bottom. When there's no flow, stay still. If you resist the flow, everything dries up. If everything dries up, the world is darkness.” 
― Haruki MurakamiThe Wind-Up Bird Chronicle
