A: In the adventure of the arts in the West, the function of landscapes had a varied development and took different directions before becoming an independent subject. It is certain that in my paintings, all elements represented, depict nature. But is the aim to represent a landscape, like Claude de Lorrain used to? Certainly not. At a certain period, people associated my painting to Caspar David Friedrich's ones. [...] It is very simple: I want to note, represent, basically paint in the simplest manner what i see - this means not only the appearance of things but what transpires immediately and its simplicity."
