Artist's Statement:Soul is the only thing left from painting, this does not mean that it has possessed something more, I mean the possibility of discovering good paintings through other ways is obliterated. A good painter is always looking for a way to vitalize the image out of his unique existence and life; the first priority is his inner journey and pilgrimage; the construction of his self; and not through concatenation of ideas and the games of forms. Such a view, after the desiccation of the retinal possibilities, has affected our ways of thinking about painting and the treasures of its history, now painting has greater demands; invites us to deal with it, not just as eyes, but as our whole existence, our sensual and intellectual existence we have strived to develop, it ultimately refers us to somewhere outside itself and makes us watch its history, not as the succession of styles and shapes, but through the spiritual quality of the paintings left from the presence of the painter.
