When I paint the cities I’ve lived in, I do so from memory and a few rather vague sketches. I’m not looking for realism but for that spark which inspires me to return to a place, in my mind, again and again. I let my impressions take over and turn into abstractions until the picture I see when I close my eyes is clear and distinctly mine. Then I transfer it to the canvas.
