In the artist's words, "Time frame of these works is 1928 to 1988. 60 years. The painter is still at it. In 'art' there is no such thing as evolution. Aesthetic experience at the age of 11 is as vital as at 70. Thus these works are not dated. As this publication is not a reference book, no dimension is given below each work. A work of art is to be experienced in toto in its given format. You turn pages of images. You choose passages of colours."
