“I, as an artist,
am entitled to conflicts,
obsessions, frustrations,
but when I approach the canvas
with my brush,
I try to resolve and triumph over them
by creating the work of art.
And the moment it is finished,
it is an independent entity.
It is released from my system
and it acquires a life of its own...” Dizi
