"I am as much a painter as I am an environmental activist. Being on a beach not only means seeing waste, but also means seeing color. Broken Dreams No.1 consists of 518 broken down pieces, man-made and natural side by side. These pieces are color coordinated and combined to make a bigger whole. It is the conflict between a single piece of waste, perceived as ugly, and the sum of color, perceived as being the opposite, as being beautiful which fascinates me. Logic can not understand this contradiction in perception and value: Is it still waste? When does it start to be beautiful? Is it worthy now? Hasn't it been worthy all along? A lot of questions that need answers … a lot of questions that we have the answer to if we see the bigger picture."
