These paintings are shamanic journeys.
They do not aim to tell stories, although they seem to do so.
They are about nonsensical rituals - borrowed or invented, which only seem familiar to the figures engaged in them. Alien in nature, yet familiar in its visceral charge, the alchemical journey is to be taken alone.
