It’s hardly a decision for me to go down to my basement every day. One may sit in comfortable rooms and talk ideas, but they have to fructify. Art has to… materialise. My studio isn’t a tidy salon. But it’s here that I come alive, forget my aches and pains. I stand for hours. There are certain compulsions in the work. The canvas talks to you. It’s an intense dialogue. You find it unusual that I use empty whisky cases to house my brushes? Maybe the other painters don’t drink any whisky [laughs]. If they did, they’d paint better!
