“I dedicate my exhibition to the celebration of fantasy and memory, and to the extension of the human mind onto the canvas. I have all my life strived for that glorious moment when this greasy, porridge-like matter in the [painting] tubes becomes transformed into a new existence as it happens in the final choir of any Handel’s oratorio; when we all – wounded, sick and tired – rise up and sing”.
