I use the concept of Chance in art. Chance working on humans in creative fields requires a crisis of spirit, a search for a different path in life and a thirst for the Infinite. A spirit that is unsatisfied with routines, selfsameness, and the familiar desires something from beyond. In my art the challenges emanating from my life’s search lead me to a non-systemic chance. I take a chance in my art to be part of a higher scheme that guides me in creating. I call the philosophy of my art ‘Chancon’ - Chance and Consciousness
