Unfinished paintings are like stories someone wanted to tell but they couldn’t. They’re always very interesting. Being able to complete someone else’s story makes me feel important… I feel like I am in control. I feel like I have become part of their story and they don’t even know it…
Drawing and painting… it feels amazing to be able to create a world of your own… but I feel better being part of someone else’s world… when people thank me for completing their work… I imagine they’re thanking me for completing their story, for giving their life some kind of closure… but usually, nobody does that…
There are some paintings that… I don’t mess around with. Some, I just leave them the way they are because… they’re perfect just like that… Maybe some stories are better untold… some stories are just… beautiful when they are incomplete…
