In reply to questions from the compiler about T03967">T03967-70 the artist wrote on 1 January 1988:
I never work from drawings or do I have pre-conceived ideas as to what I am going to do.
Each piece is a complete and separate piece of creation.
I compose them on the spot with materials that surround me in the studio.
The materials are found, some are given to me and sometimes are the accumulations of many years.
