About Fifteen Shots…From 1989 to 2003


The sky Knows.


The earth Knows,

Without love;

Without hate,

The devil knows.

I am no good at theoretical explanation, and even worse at talking about art, all I know is real life. As a work, its from, for me, is just an internal necessity. It can be a painting or a poem. Perhaps it requires a gun. All of this is decided by your own psychological tendencies, your disposition. This is not anything that can be explained by the word “art”, but rather a survival instinct, your very lift.
