I think what Adriano Berengo did is exceptionally brilliant. He believes in contemporary expression, but at the same time tries to develop this old technique into a new language. I’m a contemporary artist, but I am always learning and working with tradition.

The material has its own will, so you end up with the most interesting artworks. You start something with your destination unknown and you end up somewhere new and exciting. It’s a creative process without a doubt. Being led by the material, you learn from it.
