Catalogue Note

"When I am meditating at home in Costa Rica, I go into the garden and see the mountains behind, first I feel my oneness with everything, and something curious happens: first one has to concentrate on the detail when you want to see; but in this state, suddenly, I discover perceiving me all at once. The parts and the whole form a unit, and around you is a great whole into which you fit. When I paint I feel the need to express diversity. In many of my paintings you will find the counterpoint between the blanks - the absolutely pure canvas and densely worked detail. Nature has saved me in many ways and my work is based on that, the devotion I feel for it.
