'Creation of Eve is a classic example of images being as it were DRAWN OUT of the picture by rapid linear work with a black brush and very liquid paint (to facilitate very fast movement) - again worked with no preconceived forms in mind. A magical creation of a woman from "NON MATTER".  Mainly Ideas and forms came intuitively out of the act of painting: driven by an intense inner urge to create without specific pre-conceived formal concept...'
