I am fighting a matter which resists, which is against my will and which, the more it attracts me, the less I master it. First, I am obsessed by what is vertical; then, it breaks. The concentrations shoot off in different directions with pain and joy intermingled. In the constant struggle of my work, I am
in the dark about things experienced and sensed, which are just unsuspected signs in the chaos of which I glimpse the possible clarity.

I do not accept the fictitious third dimension, merely optical; in its place I see a real, material dimension. This is what I call the LOST DIMENSION because as its background is real it does
not consequently damage the surface of the wall. I emphasise this dimension because it is what concerns me most at the moment, seeing it as something deeply personal.
