The Author's Manifesto

Every time I sit down to clear, empty paper or copper sheet, I have the same feeling: either - or. This feeling is strange, uncertain and exciting. Will I succeed in discovering something new, something that will be satisfying to me?

I prefer paper to copper sheet, not because the art of graphics is less interesting but because I usually etch something that I have already discovered in drawing.

Women are recently my loveliest, inexhaustible theme. Again and again I keep findindg details that I have not seen before, such that can fill me with enthusiasm. Most of all I like to create something that I have either experienced or that I intimately know. That's why it is for me so important to concentrate on the detail, this attracts my attention.
